    Before you do the ::eyeroll: Im not asking how long it took you after bcp to get a BFP..

    The background:
    I was on BCP for 3 years - just got off in August - had two normal cycles. One in the middle of September.. and then started Yesturday. All on time.

    I was put on the pill to ease my cramps - they were horrible :cry:
    and now after getting off the pill - they are EVEN WORSE :hissy: just wondering if anyone else experienced this. I can barely walk :cry: and hope that eventually they calm down!!

    13 Days Until I Ovulate and hoping for that :bfp: GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

    Thanks everyone!

    Right there with you girl. I was on the pill for 13 years! Came off in July. Withdrawl bleed just 18 days later - and a cycle 50 days later. Currently sitting at Day 33 in current cycle. The pain of last month was terrible! I don't ever remember them being that bad - but 13 years was a long time ago! Just wanted to give you a :hugs: and let you know that I was hurting too - and sure as heck don't want to do it again this cycle. Toes are crossed for a :bfp: for the both of us. It can't come soon enough for me! Take care.

    Well good luck with your :bfp: I just got off the pill in August also but have yet to have :witch: at all. Now my cycle is all screwy and I am lost. As for your cramps have you looked online for natural remedies? Maybe there is a herb you can take that is safe while TTC? Good luck sorry I am not much help.

    I've been off BCP for three months now and I completely forgot how horrible periods were before BCP!!! Mine are just awful, really bad cramps and major flow (tmi!sry) I actually was almost in tears last period because of the pain. That's why I was on BCP in the first place, and I miss the light, pain-free periods!! Good luck to you, I hope we all get BFP this month!! :D

    I'm CD1 today, 2nd cycle after a natural mc and I feel like I've been kicked in the stomach by a horse. I struggled all afternoon during a meeting trying not to curl up in a ball or cry. The only positive is that I'm not in the 2ww anymore so I can take all the painkillers I like.

    My doctor gave me some mefenamic acid tablets for when it gets really bad but I try not to take them too much as high doses can interfere wth TTC.

    My cycles have been all messed up since coming off bcp 14 months ago. I think last month may have been the first time I actually ovulated since stopping bcp and I thought I was going to die because of the AF pain!!

    I was sitting with my head over the loo and everything so I know how u ladies feel. Poor us. I just used good old painkillers to drown out the pain (didn't work lol) Hope u all feel better soon and enjoy all your chocolate!!

    Doc put me on BCP years ago but I never remembered to take it until the day when my AF was due, cause by God used I get some pain, crying crying crying for ages until the overdose of pain killers kicked in , I know how all you girls feel.......but my Mum used to be the same as myself and every month if it was a work day she'd have to leave she'd be so ill and all she ever says is .....'Wait til you have a baby'...ur AF's will be so much easier :) So come on GIVE US OUR BFP WE NEED THEMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

    p.s. So strange I'd never remember my BCP and I won't go a day without my Folic Acid :) :)
