    Period MIA !
    beckyatmoms posted:
    In March I underwent IVF and unfortunately it was not successful. At the end of March I got my period and started again on BCP's for our next IVF attempt. I took 4-5 weeks of BCP's but then we decided to put the IVF off until next year so I stopped the BCP's. I have yet to get my period...which as you can imagine makes it hard to keep trying naturally. Any ideas?

    I was planning on waiting until June 1st and if I still haven't gotten my period I was going to call my GYN. Any advice would be appreciated....thatns.

    I would take a home pregnancy test..I know it can probably take awhile to get a period after BCP's, but it's been over a month right since you stopped them? I'm no professional, but I would take the just never know!!! Good luck!!!! :D
