Pledge - February 3

Hi all, I came off the pill mths ago, my AF always were irregular(only regular when on the pill), heavy and lasted about days . Now i have stopped,2 of my last AFwere shorter with normal flow.But the last AF was only days , bright red/pinkish and mostly brownish and stringy and very very light. How can i tell if what i have experienced is IB or the side effects of coming off BCP.I have some pg symtoms( faitgued , headaches and feeling bloated) but yet all the HPT's are neg.Doc won't help much. How do u know the difference ?

Reading in this site many of women experienced irregularities when coming of pills. So don't worry and in the same time try HPTs ... maybe you are pregnant :-}

Pink and brown when wiping is a common description of IB. Look for some of the other signals like creamy discharge, more frequent peeing, and unusual changes to the b___bs. Test at weekly intervals until you miss a second normal period, then go to the clinic and ask what is going on. Good luck!

Thx Granpa Viv, since my HPT's are -ve, im trying to get the idea of me being preg. off my mind, but my belly grows, even my DH now is telling me i eat way too much and starts being suspiciousand My DD tells me that" i have a baby in my belly " because it used to be flat.Go figure.. But i'll definately have to pay a visit at the clinic, cos something is going on...Thx again.
