    ChaiSpice :  Honestly, if it’s pregnancy symptoms, it’s more than likely you would get a BFP now or very soon. Its honestly hard to tell if it’s pregnancy symptoms… Especially since you’re just getting off of BC. So many symptoms you’ve “never had before” can easily be normal. Best of luck! I hope you do get your BFP!

    To me it sounds like your cycles are just messed up from coming off BC.  The slimy/stringy mucus is generally either a sign of ovulation or of your period starting. BUT take that with a grain of salt because that is my experience.  Every single woman has a different cycle and their body reacts differently to coming off BC and to becoming pregnant.  The only way for you to know is to test.  Good luck!

    Could be pregnancy, could be your period. The symptoms you listed can apply to either scenario. The only way to know is to take a test. You can try a FRER with FMU in the next few days.

    i didn’t start spotting until i started ttc.  i had perfect 28 day cycles for 4 months after i stopped the pill.  then after that 4 months, we started ttc and things went wonky.  i would spot 2-5 days before 24-28 day cycles.  i was all over the place.  i felt like a was bleeding most the month.

    it ended up taking us 2 years, 2 meds, 3 iuis, and 2 ivfs to conceive DS.

    i would say your body is getting used to coming on BCP.

    the big question would be did you ovulate, and did you have sex around ovualtion?

    If you have real pregnancy symptoms you will have a positive test.  The only thing I had before my BFP was menstrual-like cramps.  Both pregnancies I thought my period was about to show up because I got cramps.  Plus a big increase in cervical fluid instead of AF.  Those those happened like a day or two before my BFP

    ChaiSpice :  I’d find the closest pharmacy and grab a test.

    The month I got my BFP, I didn’t analyze every “symptom” like I usually had. The only thing that stood out was that my temp stayed high instead of dropping like it usually did.

    FWIW, the first month I was off BCP my hormones went completely nuts. Increased sense of smell led to me feeling nauseated all the time, so I couldn’t stand to eat. I had severe back pain, extreme irritability, etc. Once I ovulated (way later than my app predicted) most of that went away, and was quickly replaced by true PMS symptoms (acne mostly). Everyone is different! Also keep in mind that just because your cycles were 28 days while on the pill doesn’t mean they’ll be 28 days off the pill, since the pill was causing that schedule.

    If these are pregnancy symptoms you’ll get a positive test! Go and get one and report back!
