Post subject: The Pill and Pregnancy. Appreciate some Advice :) ?
I was on the pill and during the 7 days of not taking the pill I had unprotected sex 4 times and now it's 2 weeks after and I'm taking a pregnancy test tomorrow but since then me and my fiance have been talking about having children and said we wanted to try. So we thought we'd wait till this test comes out but I have stopped taking the pill as we now would like to try for a baby just in case this test is negative. But... a couple of days after stopping taking the pill i have bled and I dont know if that's the reaction of not taking the pill like every month or I'm just not pregnant but I have most of the symptoms of pregnancy as well. So because I have been bleeding like normal does that mean I'm not pregnant or just the usual reaction?
Thanks everyone please reply if you could :]

Hi Vikki Leigh,
I stopped taking the pill about a week before the end of a packet, took my last pill on a Sunday and had a period the following Friday that lasted 3 days.
That was 3 weeks ago so I'm waitiing now for my first proper period so I can work out how long my cycle is.
During the 7 days when you weren't taking the pill you should still have been protected, not sure exactly how it works but they don't advise you to use anything else so from what you've said the bleed you had was from stopping taking the pill but it's hard to say really as alot of the symptoms can be for both.
Hope this helps.

Hi Vikkileigh, you are stil protected from the pill during the 7 day break, your bleed now will be your last 'pill' bleed, if you are now no longer taking pill, you now have a chance of pregnancy although your body may need some time to adjust. Some people do get pregnant stright after coming off pill, some take a lot longer (like me!!)

when i stopped taking the pill, i had my normal bleed straight after and then didn't have one for 6 weeks but since then ive had a pretty normal cycle except for the last 2 as they have been 25 days.. so it may take your body a couple of month to get it back to normal..
Wish you all the best of luck ttc and getting a bfp.
