    Default No AF after stopping BCP? (updated)

    Anyone had this happen? I stopped the pill Saturday and still no AF? I keep feel like it is going to start anytime but then it doesn't. I do have spotting which has been going on the whole time I was on BCP.

    I am supposed to call the IVF clinic after 5 days (which is tomorrow) if no AF. I am nervous this is a bad start to my cycle. ???


    Update: So I called the IVF clinic this morning, and Amy, it was very similar to what happened to you. The nurse said she wasn't surprised at all b/c my lining was sooo thin on the BCP, there really wasn't much to have a period. So since my back was hurting on Tuesday and I had slightly more spotting that day, they are counting that as Day 1. I had my estrodial this morning and should hear back this afternoon about starting stims. Hopefully it's a go for this weekend.

    Didn't happen to me, but if it doesn't come in another couple of days, I'd call RE - I think they can induce it.

    Isn't it just ironic when you're sitting around hoping for AF?

    Hoping she comes right away, and then stays away for a long time.

    That kind of happened to me Kim. I can't tooootally remember, I just know I was freaked out too because I had been spotting after I stopped. It must have not been anything different than had been going on because I called too wondering about it. They had me come and and said sure enough that had been AF and I had probably started 2 days before I had come in! I remember stressing over it and my clinic was glad I had finally called since I had started.

    It took me about 4 days to start AF following my last BCP. My dr did say it could take up to a week. They also said that it could be a normal full-flow AF or it could be very light spotting. I assume you will be calling today? KUP and good luck. I hope AF shows soon and you can move forward with a successful cycle!
