Maybe I stopped BCP at a bad time..

because I usually always get my period on the third wed. of every month, like clockwork (while on the pill). Being off the pill my calender says I will get it next week (which is the weekend of my sis' wedding) and first week of Nov (which is the wedding of my DH's niece) AHHHHH!!!! and to make it all worse Im getting break outs! Boy, its going to be a great couple of monthsChat Icon

Oh no! it always seems to work that way doesn't it? I'm sorry you're gonna get AF at bad times but it will all be worth it in the end!

Re: Maybe I stopped BCP at a bad time..

is this your first month off it? you might not get it right away, so I wouldn't necessarily go off the calendar.

my friend told me it took her 6 months to get hers after going off! but I think there was an issue there because her dr then put her on provera. so who knows.

Re: Maybe I stopped BCP at a bad time..

i am a little confused....why do you think you are going to get it at a different time now?

i figured i would get it the same time i was getting it while on the pill - maybe a few days early or late but within that week (if my body goes back to normal of course) i just marked my calender for the date i was going to get it if i was still on the pill and figured if things went back to normal that would be about right...

i spotted very mildy one day last week and now i am spotting again since last night...i have no idea what my body is doing Chat Icon

getting of the pill is more stressful than i imagined...but i've noticed that i've been in a pretty good mood so far while i have been off...

You never really know how your body is going to be after going off BC. I was pretty regular before I was on it but I've been off for about 3-4 months and my cycles have ranged from 33 days to 50 days.

I noticed that stress totally affects my body. I wasn't noticing this before because BC would always regulate to 28 days exactly.

Re: Maybe I stopped BCP at a bad time..

i agree with the other girls...my cycles haven't been exactly the same in the past few months since going off the pill so you might not be able to predict exactly when you will get AF. maybe you'll luck out and she won't be there for the weddings!

Well, the first month off BCP I got it 4 days early..which was fine. According to that PMS date fertilityfriend.com says I will be getting it Oct 14 and NOv 6 which are the two weekends I wish I didnt have AF grr. I mean AF is never on the dot (unless I am on BCP) but still upsetting to think that it MIGHT happen.Chat Icon
