Post subject: stopping pill mid pack and falling pregnant
QUestion- How would I know my conception /due date. I have been on the pill for a few years. I decided to come off and stopped taking the pill 2 weeks into the pack. I fell pregnent shortly after (which is cool wanted a second) however how would I know my due date. When would I have ovulated after stopping the pill? straight away? I would think the count back methoud wouldn't work in this situation?

You'd have to wait for the scan date really to confirm things, you can ovulate within days if you stop mid pack ,some women ovulate anyway on the pill, especially the mini pill , or it could have taken weeks
Last time i got pregnant was on the pill and I had a scan the day after I tested and I was 13 weeks and 4 days which was a bit of a shock as i thought I was more like 5 weeks until the doc said he could feel my womb (hence the quick scan )
If you had a "period" though after stopping it then counting from then might be pretty accurate xx
