Hello everyone! I recently stopped birth control pills after 2 years of being on them because my fiance and I decided to try and conceive. My last period started January 8th and ended January 12th. We don't see each other as often now, but we had sex on the 13th 19th of January. For the past 3 days I have gotten extremely thick, cloudy discharge with a jelly like consistency (for for tmi) there is A LOT of it. My nipples have also been pretty sensitive and I have had some pretty bad cramping on both sides. Even before I started the pill I never got this much or this consistency, could I be pregnant or is this a side effect of birth control? Or even ovulation?
I stopped the BCP at the end of last May and got my BFP in July! I had some crazy withdrawal symptoms though, from being extremely hormonal, to nausea, to sweating, to fatigue ... all from stopping the pill.
I used OPKs to determine when I was ovulating ... and we started trying at the beginning of July and apparently it only took one or two times lol. However, before I got my BFP I had about 3 days of massive discharge - like way more than I had ever experienced.
According to your dates though it def sounds like you're ovulating so I would get to DTD with your fiancee ASAP
Thank you all so much for replying ! I had the supposively "fertile mucous" on the 22-24th (and dtd on the 19th) - i heard sperm can live for up to 3 days so could this mean i am pregnant? Since my last post i have been getting a lot of cramping, i actually peed my pants from sneezing the other day along with goig to yhe bathroom more often, and nausea. The other morning i was sitting at my desk and i got the biggest urge to get sick.. Which i proceeded to do so. Also, i had some cervical mucous today that was white (not transparent at all) and stretchy or 'elasticy' i would call it ! Anyways, i hope i get a bfp when i test .. But do you guys think im just overthinking this?
Actually, sperm can live up to 5 days in there It doesn't guarentee you're pregnant though.
Unfortunately, the body can make all sorts of weird symptoms when you want to be pregnant. Before I got pregnant with DD, I always thought I could possibly be pregnant as we DTD close to ovulation, I had all sorts of weird symptoms, etc.
The month I actually did get pregnant, I had no weird symptoms at all. I didn't even think I was pregnant. haha
The body is mysterious
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!
