About a month and a half ago i went off the pill – i just completly stopped taking pill mid cycle( i know your not suppose to, but it was making me sick). The last time i had a period was at least 2 months ago. About the time i should of gotten my period i had probally an hour of spotting, and nothing since then- until today. Ive had some cramps and then really dark bleeding just started. My fiance and i have had unprotected sex so i know that its possible to be pregnant, however i have been taking pregnancy tests every week( for a month and half!) and they have all came up negative.
Anyways, Bees, what is your expierences with coming off the pill and period returning or getting pregnant?

@Jen51287: Think there was a recent thread about this, but can’t seem to find it anyway. I have been on/off (mostly on) BC for 12 years. I got off last month, ovulated on day 24 and had my next period- so 36 days. Totally depends on the person some people are fine right away. Do you chart? At 2-3 months I would prob see my GYNO plus if nothing else you could have a blood test done to be sure you are/are not preg.

I think anything with a lot of bleeding is probably your period. Implant bleeding I believe is usually just a bit of pink or brown spotting. But you could POAS to be sure.

But saw the title of this post, and wanted to stop in for moral support…
Sounds like it could be your period. As others say, my experience is that implantation is more spotty / light than what you’ve described. Give it a day or two and you’ll probably have a much clearer indication of what is going on.
And yes, going off the pill can throw your hormones / cycle for a loop… can take a while for things to regulate again.
If you are ok with getting pregnant right now… then carry on… if not, you really need to find a method of BC that works for you.
