Hello! I'm new here and this is my first time posting so here we go! I took my last birth control pill May 4 and got my period the 8th. My partner and I are trying to conceive so after 4 years I have stopped taking birth control. After research I've found that it can take months for your period to become regular again, but I also know some women conceive within weeks after stopping. Anywho, my partner and I have sex OFTEN. And by often I mean at least 5 days a week (unprotected), sometimes twice a day. While I haven't had a period since May 8th, I have been experiencing some symptoms starting about a week and a half ago. I'll just list them lol
-slightly sore nipples that lasted a couple days (last week, but this has returned today)
-random stuffy nose and postnasal drip
-fatigue (specifically falling asleep earlier)
-headaches and dizziness everyday
-cramps when I would have gotten my period (June 5)
-a tiny spot of blood on May 31st
-stomach aches and pains (especially after eating)
-shortness of breath
-bloated stomach (I'm skinny so you can REALLY tell the difference)
Now with all this said I took a test this morning and the results were one (very faint) line indicating negative. Anyone with an experience close to mine know the chances of me being pregnant? Anyone had trouble getting pregnant after stopping birth control? HELPP!

Hi there. I have been off the pill for 5 months or so now and my period came back regularly at 2 months. I am currently in the 2WW and due for AF in another week...I will be testing soon....Good luck! Yes, every woman is different when she resumes regular ovulation so hope you have a short sweet stay here and get your BFP soon!

2WW= 2 week wait.

Unfortunately, every woman is different when going off the pill...and all the symptoms you are having could be a result from both pregnancy or going off the pill.

Furthermore, it's really hard to know when you might get an accurate pregnancy test result, as you may not have ovulated yet...or may have ovulated late.

I wish I could give you more definite answers...but for now, only time will tell if you're pregnant. If your period doesn't arrive, keep testing You're doing everything else right. Good luck!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!
