    Hi Just wondered if anyone else has come off microgynon to start ttc?
    I have read it can take ages for :witch: to sort itself out again.

    I stopped taking it a couple of weeks ago and am sure that I am going to start getting over excited everytime :witch: doesnt show when expected. Don't want to be on an emotional rollercoater!!!! Although I am sure this is probably a big part of ttc no matter what!

    I came off Microgynon in Dec and have been regular, 28-32 day cycles since. I was on the pill for 12 years in total.
    Am still trying and hoping to fall soon.

    I came off microgynon in December 2007 and after a quick withdrawl bleed followed by a 30 day cycle I had nothing for over 100 days then a few cycles in the 40 day region followed by another 130 + day cycle then a 49 day cycle but I now appear to be settling into a 35-36 day cycle. I did have other stresses in this time which may have made things worse for me.

    Hi Clairefairy!
    Welcome to bnb and fx'd you get your bfp soon!
    I took my last microgynon on 31.12.08 and have been ttc since. I was using bcp for 14years without a break, but my periods have returned to normal and are now between 28-32days apart. Hope this helps, although everyone is different!! xx

    Hi I came off it end of Dec, had withdrawal bleed, then 28, 32, and 36 day cycles :( taking Agnus Castus tablets at the mo to try and regulate them back to 28-30 days so fingers x'd. Everyone is different on here as you've prob realised!!! try not to get too stressed as I think this has hindered our progress in terms of cycle length

    Thanks ladies!!
    Priddy you stopped at almost the same time as me! My stomach hasn't felt right since the withdrawal bleed. You had any funny aches etc? Or anyone else have odd reactions after coming off the pill?

    I was on the pill for seven years and feel in a better mood now I am off it so far-although that could be me happy after more :sex: and the idea of a baby!!!

    Hi, i was on microgynon for 4 yrs then came off it and got pg with my daughter 1st month of trying, then went back on the same pill for 2 yrs came off got pg again in the 1st month but that sadly ended in miscarriage, but i caught again straight away and had my son. Now im waiting for the depo to stop messing me about after having the last shot in oct last yr.

    But just thought i would add my experience here just to let you know it can happen quickly, my friend has always said me and my dp must be super fertile lol, i hope you get ur bfp soon.

    sal xx

    This is the same as me except I stopped in January, and was on it for 10 years, then had a year off, then a year on again before ttc.

    Both times I stopped I got back to a regular cycle almost straight away but I think I was really lucky.

    I was on Microgynon when I stopped to ttc my DS - I got my bfp 3rd cycle off the pill (which were regular 30-34 day cyles). Was just on Cerazette this time and same bfp 3rd cycle off the pill! so it doesn't necessarily mean bad things for you.

    good luck ttc!

    I was on Microgynon for just over 6 yrs. Came off it last October - the first week I think & found out at end of November I was pregnant. I was 5 weeks pregnant to.
    We was trying but I was shocked as we didn't expect it to happen so quick.
    Everybody is different so good luck!!!!

    Hi,

    I came off microgynon two years ago, after 11 years. As it was a coincidence that by the time I withdrew I had a family bereavement, I went so stressed, sad, etc. that I had very long cycles after that (up to seven weeks). Don't recall withdrawal bleed though. I didn't ovulate often, I think it took my body time to recover from so many years of taking it.

    Back then, when I withdrew, I read few forums where women shared all sorts of experiences, just like we are mentioning here. Some women get pregnant soon afterwards; yet, for some others take much longer.

    For me the worse part was the hormonal rebalancing -whatever this means- afterwards. However, I've been better off microgyonon as it drove me mad (and my DH). When I was taking the pill, of course, I had short cycles; however, for the past six/seven months, my cycles are 30-31 days long, and I've been ovulating regularly. So, in my case, it's been a long wait. Now I'm very happy TTC. All I recommend you is to listen to your body, and you'll see how it responds to the change.

    Best of lucks! :flower:
