Hi I came off pill In sep. I had my period 14th Oct. I had what looked like implantation bleed 9th Nov for a day and a half and have had negative pregnancy tests. It was light pink to rusty brown with spotting didn't look like my usual period and I'm usually regular 28 days 3 to 4 duration. I am trying to conceive and had unprotected sex every 2 to 3 days during this cycle. I was considering going to my own doctor for bloods ? Advice please ?

Get your blood beta hcg testing.

Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
There is always a chance of pregnancy with unprotected sex,you can go for blood beta hcg testing for confirmation.
But if it is negative it could be due to hormonal changes caused by pill.

do you think there is anything else I can do to increase my chance of getting pregnant or is it a case of giving my body time to get back to normal after years on and off pill . ? I thought I ovulated Oct and sep but I was going by cervical mucous checking only and the mild crsmps?

Hello dear,
Sorry for such a long delay in my response.
In your case,you have to give some time to your body to returned back to normal from the effect of pill.
You can start with folic acid and try for it normally.
Once you start ovulating properly,you may get pregnant.
