46 days & still no AF...
chevychick2188 posted:
My husband and I have TTC since May 31st when I stopped taking my BC. On June 4th my AF came for 3 days. Since then I've had all kinds of weird symptoms. The ones I had 2 weeks after stopping my BC I think were from my BC. My next AF was supposed to be on June 27th and that day has come and gone with nothing. I figured that my AF was late because of me getting off of the BC, stress or something else. But I have only had slight cramping not like I usually get when its time for my AF. July 3rd through July 9th I was becoming nautious after eating in the morning and had to lay down. I took a test on the 3rd because I was already late. But I got a BFN!! I took another test on July 13th because my AF still hadn't come but my the result was still a BFN!! Since I took that last test ive noticed my breast have become very swollen, heavy and hurt. I've also began eating weird things. Stuff my husband has been trying to get me to try for almost 4 years I'm suddenly wanting. I never seem to be full either. Ive had to go to the bathroom alot more too. I took one more test early this morning and still a BFN!! But I cant ignore my symptoms and I have made an appointment for next week. What are your thoughts? Could I be pregnant? If you don't think so what could this be??
Yvette Smith, MD, MPH responded:
The honest answer would be that we don't know what's going on with your body yet. Generally we recommend that people wait 3 months before trying to conceive after coming off of the pill. We know that it can take the body a few months to settle down into a reliable pattern that can be interpreted. It can be very frustrating if things don't make sense when you begin trying for pregnancy and that may be what's going on with you.

You were right to schedule an appointment. Your caregivers may be able to sort it out (or maybe not at this point). A negative blood pregnancy test would confirm that you are not pregnant at this point and would take that question off of the table (just as a positive one would confirm that all of these symptoms are from a very early pregnancy).

We'll all hope for great news for you. At the very least, things will probably settle down over the next month or two and make more sense.

Thank you for your help! My AF showed up a couple of days after posting so I didn't need to go see my doctor. It was a bittersweet relief getting my AF so now I have my answer. Thanks again :)
