YAY NAT! We're in the same boat! I came off of the pill in January too - had a period 49 days later and am now on day 52 waiting for a second period with all neg hpts and blood tests. I have been doing ovulation tests and none have come back positive so I don't think I'm ovulating either!

Nat, are you charting? Do your basal body temps and you will know if you are ovulating. Also get an OPK and test for the lh surge. I would check with your doctor since you have not gotten your period yet. I stopped the pill in Jan and got it but it took about 32 days but i still got it and slowly it has been returning to normal. You will want something to induce your period.

I was on the pill for 8 years. For the first year and a half I got a total of maybe 8 periods. I would go for 3-4 months with no period. My dr said that I was not ovulating. I was put on Provera for 10 days & got my period. Took clomid days 5-9 and got pg that very month.

Thanks for the quick response. I'm glad someone else knows what I'm going thru. I've taken 4 hpt and all -. It gets frustrating, cause I had symptoms of pregnancy then. But I was told it was just my body coming off of the pills. I do have a son that will be 4 in July. I wasn't on any bc then, and my periods were irregular then too. I had missed my period in september and i assumed i was....nope, didn't get prego until the next month. So I do figure there is a possibility of ovulating without a period. But after 4 months....i'm not so sure :( No I haven't charted or anything, I thought it would be pretty simple....ppl get pg everyday and aren't even trying. Thanks again!!!

Heather: how long from the time you went off of the bcp until your dr put you on medications? Thanks!

Heather, in what pill you were for 8 yrs I am very interested because I don't get my period on my own only on pills. Please let me know. Thank you :o)

I went off the pill in August 03 & didn't start going to the dr until Nov 04. She put me on provera right away because it had been 3 1/2 months since I had a period. We told her we wanted to start trying about a month later and so she gave me the clomid. I started that in Jan and conceived that month. I was on birth control for 8 years (desogen). I was regular on birth control. Once I was off though... I actually had 3 periods over a 7 weeks spand. My dr was fine giving us the clomid once we told her we want to try. Since i'm soooo irregular she said that I am not Oing on my own.
