I have a question for all of you ladies. I have been reading here almost daily for the last month but haven't posted as I really haven't had much to report. We have 2 boys and are hoping for a little girl and have been trying the Shettles method to have a girl but we will be happy with whatever we are given for sure. I was hoping for a girl with our 2nd since we already had a boy but now I couldn't imagine it any other way. that you have a little bit of history here's my question.... I haven't been charting or anything because I have NO idea how , but just wanted to see what you all thought. :shuffle:

5/19 was my last day on the pill.
5/21-5/23 I had VERY light bleeding. Almost didn't need anything.
6/16 am POAS bfn
6/17 bb's are really sore & no sign of af
6/19 bb's still really sore...not really the bb's as much as really sore nipples :blush:

I don't even know when I should have been expecting AF as I had such a light, not even really a period. Whatcha think???

It's not impossible that you might be pg, so you could test again. But, it could also just be hormonal changes from coming off the pill. It can take a while to get you body back in the swing of things again. Still, if I was in you exact same position, I'd give it another week and if no AF I'd test.

I had a couple of long cycles after coming off BCP. I know some people it takes weeks after AF is due for her to show up again.
Hopefully things get back to normal for you soon!!!

i had three cycles that were 35 days each after the pill! We were trying to get pg and I normally had 28 day cycles, so that was a rollercoaster ride! The pill can really throw things off whack
