1st period after coming off the pill ....

Hi all,

I came off the pill just before the wedding. I was due on if i was still on the pill days on the weekend. That as come and gone and just occasionaly spotting but no real bleedig. If you can understand that.

How long did it take you to get your 1st period after coming off the pill.

I've hear it can take 6 to 8 weeksb bit worried as i'm always hungry at themoment.

    Hi kelly, it took me 6 months for my body to sort its self out, i didn't have a period for the first 3 months then i had a bad one then missed one, after that they sorted themselves out.

    Everyone is different, i spent a small fortune on preg tests every month, but the doctor says it's normal for it to take between 6months and a year.

    hope it helps

    Then I am at the other end of the spectrum and my period came bang on time the first month after coming off the pill without a hitch so it depends on the person and the pill basssically!

    I came off the pill 18months ago and min still haven't settled down!!! Its turning into a total nightmare! It depends very much on the person and apparently is also related to how your periods were before you went on it.

    My third period after stoppong was horrendoussly heavy. Latsde 9 days until I was given hormone things off the doc to stop it. Took another period after that for my body to settle into a good 27 day pattern. xx
  • I came off the pill 6 weeks ago and have just started mine yesterday. I have heard that it takes a while though. You know how weird these things are! x

    I came off Cerazette in July 2007 and had a period 1 month after and have been on the dot ever since. Everyone is different mind.
