Came off Pill 3 weeks - Am I ovulating already?

Sep 10th, 2013, 20:57 PM   #1
 
Dear all,

New to this forum and very nervous/excited about TTC.

I came off my pill (Yasmin) around 3 weeks ago to have my 'normal period' (aka: 7 day break). I decided to not start a new pill packet and begin TTC as I heard it could take up to a year and several months to even to begin ovulating after coming off the pill!

I began to research tips on TTC and the main tip I got was to begin monitoring my cycle and ovulation. I therefore decided to purchase Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test and Asdas own and begin testing. I started testing on CD 11 (month 1 post pill taking!) with Asdas own and had negatives up until CD 15 where the line was somewhat stronger, indicating it could be positive. I therefore decided to whip the Clearblue Digital out on CD 16 and I got a smily face!

I immediately went online to see if it was even possible to get a positive so soon after coming off my pill?? I wasn't really expecting to but wanted to begin monitoring anyway and got quite a shock. On several forums I've read that the pill could however mess up results to the point of them being completely inaccurate...

My question is...can I ovulated during my first non pill taking month? Can I trust my clearblue digital to be accurate??

Help please... Don't want to get too excited about pregnancy happening sooner rather than later...!!

You can ovulate really quick it just depends on your body however ovulation tests detects the LH hormone which isnt 100% on detecting ovulation as it can rise and you can just not ovulate the only way to tell if you did ovulate is to temp before & after you ovulate as after ovulation you get a temp rise until the next cycle starts, what CD are you now and are you still getting + ovulation tests? x

Hey,

Thanks so much for getting back to me!

Today is cycle day 16, month 1 post pill. I thought I'd ask as soon as I took the test earlier this evening for some advice. I suppose every woman's body is different. I was a little worried because I've yet to find anyone online who ovulates (and become pregnant) month 1 of TTC after the pill.

I was thinking about purchasing a basal thermometer. Do u recommend?

Kind Regards!

Morning nfeeny!

I may have to invest then...I've heard quite a few pro's to temping as it appears to be the only REAL and trustworthy sign of ovulation.

Well after receiving my smiley face from Clearblue Digital yesterday we DTD last night. I know it might not be accurate this close to coming off the pill but I didnít want to waste a window if there was one! PlusÖdonít reeeeally mind it! I may wait to buy any more ovulation testing items until my next cycle starts (if it starts...you never know! I could get lucky!).

Thanks for your advice.

It is very possible, my best friend came off the pill, had one normal period and got pregnant the following month. I have no idea if the pill can cause inaccurate results on opks but I would have thought it would be doubtful x

This happened to me, I was on the pill (microgynon) for about 3 years, then got the implanon for 1 year and then back on the pill for about 2 months, came off the pill and got a period straight away and then conceived the next month fingers crossed for you xox

Thanks girls! You've all really lifted my spirits. I've scoured the internet for days trying to find people in the same situation. Will be OPK-ing tonight again (CD 17) and will wait for Aunt Flow I suppose...

If you think about it you can get pregnant on the pill (my 16 year old is a result of a missed pill!) so I guess you can definitely get pregnant straight away if your lucky! Fx for you x
