Ovulation before Menses after stopping the pill????

Copied from Origional thread in Fertility..............not many women answering in there.............

Hi, I am on CD52 right now. I had my post pill withdrawal bleeding April 10-14th, and I am still waiting for me normal period to start. I am wondering if I will ovulate, or if I have, before I get my period? I have been using fertilityfriend.com, but only to track CM and CP. I have nto started temping yet. I was going to wait until my period started.

Also, should I be worried about conceiving if I haven't started my period yet? I have been to the doctor twice since stopping the pill, and she does a urin test every time I go in. But my CM has had signs of being fertile, but does that mean I ovulated?

Thanks for the advice ladies!

YES! I got pregnant right after stopping the pill (after being on it for seven months) I had my withdrawal bleed and then didn't have another period for 1 1/2 years!!

Without temping you can not be sure of ovulation. If you ever have CM (be it fertile or not) you need to be careful.

Lastly - I have seen women have a super long cycle after getting off the pill too.

HTH! good luck.

Thats what is making me worry, I do not know if or when I ovulated, but I have had CM this whole time, Including EWCM for 3 days. I dont know what any of this means. lol

I would start temping in your position, when I went off birth control I started temping around CD30 to see if I could figure anything out. I ovulated about 10 days later and was able to confirm the temp rise. Also, just being off BC can really mess up your CM patterns.

I just wanted to second what everyone has already said; That it is definitely possible to ovulate and get pregnant before AF when stopping bcp. I am now in my 4th cycle after stopping bcp which I was on for 11 years. I started temping immediately after my last pill withdrawal bleed, and was able to confirm a temp rise indicating ovulation at about day 16. Here is my chart if you would like to check it out. The one at the bottom starting on Feb 17 is my first cycle off the pill. Good luck!

I'd like to third the notion of ovulation before AF after stopping the pill. I got off Triphasil after 14 years, had a 2 days withdrawal bleed and then I got preggo right away.
