    @Soon2beeMrsM: That sounds right. Especially if it is close to your egg’s special trip.

    I had the same thing. My last period was 2/6-2/10, and I went off the pill at that time, and about 2 weeks later as I was approaching ovulation there is definitely an increase in cervical mucus. I never remembered it pre-pill either!

    I was excited that I was (presumably) ovulating that quickly, but I never got my period. It’s been over a month, nearly two, and I’m still waiting for it. It really does take some time for your cycle to regulate.

    Good luck!

    Oh how I wish I could go off the pill!  I’ve been on so many kinds for about 5 years now.  I would love to just get back on track and take a break from the hormones and their side affects.  I do remember the pain you’re talking about during ovulation though, and I have cramps and pains like that on the pill while my doctor says it’s nothing??? So frustrating!

    @Soon2beeMrsM: No other serious symptoms, I just kind of feel like I’ve been PMS-ing for 3 weeks, haha! I was also scared of the breakouts, but I haven’t had any yet, knock on wood! I did drop about 10 pounds which is a great!!I had spotting EVER SO SLIGHTLY (really not even noticeable, but I was paying more attention b/c I was waiting for my period) the week that I would have had my period if I was still on the pill. But nothing to write home about!!

    We’re not TTC for about another year (just went back to condoms), but I wanted to get off the pill and off the hormones to get back to normal in preparation for it, and it was also causing me to be a crazy hormonal bitch =)

    @Soon2beeMrsM: I would love too, but he’s not a fan of other methods of birth control and we really can’t take a risk right now on having an accident!  I am going to discuss it with him again, cause the side affects such anymore.  No drive, constant cramps and just feeling “off.”

    @TheFutureMrsLamkin: Hahaha yesssss! I’d really talk to your guy about condoms though, my Fiance always HATED them, but realized quickly that getting used to them worked out better for him in the long run than having to deal with my crazy hormones!! I was such a crazy person haha, I don’t know how he put up with me. I was mean.  I feel so much better now that I’m off. It’s like this big weight lifted and I’m back to myself. And I actually WANT to have sex now, so he’s happily obliging on the condom thing haha!!! Good luck girl 🙂

    When I went off the pill for awhile a few years ago, my cycle NEVER came back.  I think I had one super light one in over a year before I went back on the ring.  I totally remember having a month with really bad discharge mid-cycle, but that was it.  I think I went through like two tampons in sixteen months or something like that. 

    I had a bunch of other things going on at the time (terrible ssri withdrawal, not eating enough) so that might have had something to do with it, though.  I never had it checked into partly because there were other things going on and partly because since I wasn’t ttc or even having much sex, it wasn’t really an issue.

    @Soon2beeMrsM: I just got off the pill at the beginning of February, and my cycle has returned to normal.  That cervical fluid you see is what helps the sperm to travel to your egg.  It actually is quite normal, and required for fertility.  My recommendation is to get the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility.  It will seriously help, and answer any and all questions you have about getting off the pill and trying to not get pregnant.  I’m using it, and it has informed me a lot about my body and helped me to make sure my body is returning to normal after the pill. 🙂

    Congrats on quitting BCP!! Those hormones suck 😛
