    Hi Everyone

    I was just wandering if anyone can remember how long it took to get your period after coming off the pill. Its been about 5 weeks now and ive not had anything, I did read that this can be normal, but i don't remember it being so long last time, tho i was using a different pill then.

    It took 7 weeks for me to get a period. But i was on a mini pill (cerazette) and wasnt having periods when I was on it, so I dont know if that affected things.

    I think it can be a case of how long is a piece of string! If I had gotton to 8 weeks though I would have gone to the doctor to see if theres a way to get things kickstarted.

    Good luck xxx

    It took 12 weeks for me to get my first period after coming off Microgynon in May, having been on it 8+ years! Then it was another 7 weeks until the second time. Incredibly frustrating when you're trying to conceive but you don't even have a chance every 4 weeks! I went to the dr at 10 weeks and she wasn't particularly sympathetic and said it just takes time!

    I'm now waiting for my 3rd ovulation, and hopefully there'll be no period to follow this time smiley - smiley I hope you don't have too long to wait.

    Good luck xxx
