Post subject: quick question ?
hi this might seem like a silly question but i am on the injection and am coming off it i havent had a period all the time i have been on it ( 3 years), and have recently had a period exactly like i used to have before the injection. was just wonderin if you have a period does this mean u are releasin an egg, and will this give me quicker chances of becoming pregnant, my next jab was due 20th october but have cancelled, so we cant try until after then any way.thanku tasha

Not necessarily especially while on contraception as it can just be hormonal break through bleeding rather than a real period , but FX things get back to normal for you pretty quickly , the actual hormones from the injection leave your body quite quickly when you stop it but then it's up to your body to take over and get back into a proper cycle and that can take some women longer than others , Agnus castus taken from your period until you ovulate can help for some women(and can actually counteract some forms of contraception if you take it while using them ) and you can always try opk's for a while to see when you actually ovulate for the first time, they're pretty cheap online and will give you a good idea of when to expect your first proper period. But you could find everything goes back to normal straight away anyway , good luck xx
