hello. i recently came of a hormonal pill and had unprotected sex on and around when i stopped taking it. i am a continuous taker and my last period b4 coming off the pill was 3months b4. 5days after having unprotected sex i had a abnormal period (brown spotting then a day of a heavier flow and then stopped) was this a period or a reaction to coming off the pill? i also had mild cramping. then after this "period" a week later i was having sex again. my other question is.. when will i obulate and should i test a month from the "period" i had or 2 weeks from the week after it to take a test???
Everyone is different to when they ovulate. Some ovulate straight away, others 4-6 weeks later and others a few months later. It all depends on how quickly your body starts producing the hormones that the pill supressed.
The 'period' you mentioned, sounds more like a withdrawl bleed than an actual period.
If you are trying to conceive, then I would suggest you start taking Folic Acid as this is important for the baby's development espeically within the first trimester.
You could also try and get Ovulation Prediction Kits. They work similar to pregnancy tests. You urinate on them and if you are ovulating there is a specific hormones in your urine which the test picks up.
The more you try the harder it can become as couples feel more stressed about getting pregnant and it becomes more of a chore and more about baby making rather than something that a loving couple would do.
my partner isn't very worried, he thinks the unprotected sex is adventurous lol i thought i was going to have my period the other day as i had some cramping but nothing.. maybe i'm ovulating now? never had cramps without a period before so i'm a little confused. and the side affects of coming off the pill are a pain (headaches, nausea, eating less, bloating) i'm trying not to stress; its hard when you can't wait for 2lines lol. i will get some pre-natal-vitamins this week thank you for replying.
depends where you live.. if your american, i think you can get tests for like $1. but they can go up to $20.
if your period is a regular cycle and you know the dates of when your next period is, then wait for it- if you don't get it by a week later than when it should start take a test.
so I had my period and then last week I had my fertile time. not sure on which day but I had plenty sex so hopefully its all good. ill test on the 19th if I don't have a period, and again on the 23rd if I still haven't got it. (due to the fact that my period is normally due on the 18th of every month but last month was on the 21st) wish mi luck
ok so its the 25th of june. i tested on friday which was the 22 and i got a inconclusive test- it was not a neg but not a clear line(it looked like a shadow.. barely there at all) so i tested yesterday morning (which was sunday) and although it took forever(2-3mins) it came up a postive its a faint positive but its a very clear line. so im 4ish weeks pregnant according to my cycle (which was 34-36days since i stoped the pill) - now im gona retest again tomoro to see if the the line gets darker and then i'll make a appointment to see a doctor. (my partner wants it confirmed b4 i can even tell anyone)- i didnt think i would be so quickly, as my cycle changed so dramatically since being off the pill. and i thought my firtile time was a week b4 it must of been lol. oh well tho. sometime in early march hopefully ill have a beautiful baby to show u all
