So those that saw my post last week....know that the witch came during my vacation to Mexico... I decided after we got there that we would chance it and stop my pill for good. 3 days afterwards the witch showed up (despite the fact that she was here the week before we left) so I started taking my pill again as soon as she showed up because I didn't want to spend the rest of the trip with a migraine and not being able to enjoy the trip (it stopped after I started the pill again). At the time according to fertilityfriend I was due for AF again on the 18th. and July 31, Aug 1-2 was my fertile window. we bd but I hadnt really been off of my pill (bc I had stopped it that night. I highly doubt I could have gotten preg then. esp since the witch showed) so as soon as we got home, I stopped the pill again. (Sun) and the witch showed up AGAIN. So now fertility friend has my fertile days listed as the 16-18th of this month. (the witch seems to be almost over after just 2 days) In the past I usually have bled/spotted (probably tmi) after missing a pill until I started a new pack. So now I dont even know when my actual fertile days would be..... Has anyone ever had that issue with b/c? I am now wondering how long before I might actually have the chance to get preg. I know htis probably doesnt make much sense... I hope it does to at least someone. I just kinda needed to get my thoughts out.
When I went to have my IUD out last week my MW said that I may experience some bleeding a few days after because of the withdrawals of going off from the hormones.
I would dare to guess that if you stopped your pills in the middle of your pack it may have been more of a withdrawal bleeding that an actual menstrual cycle. If that is the case I would look at the time that you would typical be ovulating on a 28 day cycle (if that is what your pills are) and go from there. From my understanding of the conversation I had last week with the MW it is possible to still ovulate and conceive even after the withdrawal bleeding.
When I was on the pill before my last pregnancies I didn't have abnormal bleeding, but I also stopped the pills at the end of my pack so that could be why it was different.
I hope that helps, and good luck!
Thanks Morel_baby. I had only used about 2-3 pills before stopping them.... and total after what I then took latr on vacay I only used a week of the new pack. so maybe it was breakthrough ? I had AF very light on Tuesday, yesterday it was more than spotting, less than AF and today it seems done. so possibly... I am hopeful but I will sit and wait and wait until my body figures itself out.
