My husband and I are starting to prepare for conception in the following months. I stopped my bc pills before my last period started on April 11th. That period of course was normal. Ive been on bc for nearly 9 years, so I cannot even remember what kind of periods I had prior to beginning it. By the calendar, I should have started again on May 9th. So far, nothing. No real characteristic vaginal discharge. I have felt pretty bloated the last few days I took a pregnancy test this morning just to see, which was negative. I was just wondering if anyone else had a lag between stopping bc and starting a natural cycle.?
