My hubby and I are TTC, and in order to do so, I came off of birth control mid-December 2013. I had been on BC for about a decade — mostly with pills, but the last two or three years or so with NuvaRing. For the past four months, I have had one good week or so before spotting begins and continues on through to AF. (Can you imagine how that can “kill the mood”?) I started using ovulation predictor kits, and for two whole cycles, I had not one positive LH surge that was indicated by the strips. My OBGYN said that I wouldn’t be having a period if I wasn’t ovulating, and that I was putting undue stress on myself so early in the game. They say that, when it’s been a year and no luck, that’s a good time to go back to the doctor. Bloodwork says thyroid and progesterone are within normal levels. Hubs is 28, and I am 31, so I am still within a healthy window during which to conceive.
My question is this: has anyone else had similar spotting issues after coming off of BC? If so, how long did you have this issue before things got back to normal? Thanks for any personal insight, advice, encouragement, etc., you can give!
