Period disappeared after pill

kitkat • We are expecting our first baby ♥️

I stopped taking my pill back in August and had normal periods for September, November and December (was having long 35-40 day cycles but at least they were regular!) now I haven’t had a period since start of December 🙄 I’ve had light spotting a couple times but other than that nothing! I don’t think I’m overly stressed and I have been able to push it to the back of my mind but it’s horrible because I keep taking a pregnancy test like every couple weeks just to see if I am or not (all negative obviously...). My doctor just told me it can take a while for your body to get back to normal but that’s been almost 8 months now 😞

I’m feeling really depressed because this whole TTC journey is proving much more difficult than expected. I used to take my pill religiously and now I’m thinking what was the bloody point!

Has anyone got any similar stories? How long did it take you to get back to normal and conceive?

Thanks x
