Hi I had a period whilst on birth control on October 22nd 2011. I ended that pack after that period, 11 days later on November 2nd I had a bleed. I'm guessing from stopping the pill. So this is a withdrawal bleed? And do I ovulate after or before that? I got pregnant in November and I'm wondering around when it could have happened and when the ovulation could've occurred. Cuz I've read you can ovulate immediately after stopping the pill.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The bleeding that you experienced few days after stopping with birth control pill use could be the withdrawal bleeding. The fertility and ovulation can return immediately (in immediate pill free cycle), after you come off the birth control pill use. If you had been sexually active without protection after stopping with birth control pill use, chances of pregnancy are possible in immediate cycle. In this situation, your conception date would be after your withdrawal bleeding. If you were not regular with pill intake, then your conception date can also be before your withdrawal bleeding. You can calculate your conception date with your due date (if known) or LMP (last menstrual period), or by getting a dating scan done by your doctor/gynecologist (gestational age and conception date would be calculate as per baby’s growth and development). Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further clarification and assistance.
Take care.
