Question: I have just recently went off of Generic Micronor. I was on this Since April 2012, after being on Depo Provera for a few years. My husband and I are now wanting to start trying to have a baby. My last Pill was december8, 2012.The last few days I have not felt the greatest, had about 2 hours of nausea, extremly tired, and stomach cramps. I did a pregnancy test and it was negative. I have not started my periods yet since going off of micronor. What should i expect with starting of periods and conceiving. how long could it take.

It will take a few cycles before proper ovulation takes place.Maybe 2-3 months at the least. Your periods will come,dont worry.It may take some time for regular cycles to commence after stopping the pill.I suggest just waiting for spontaneous menses to commence. The symptoms you are having are pre-menstrual syndrome.Once your periods start again,keep a menstrual diary. Then you can calculate your fertile period.Which is usually between day 11 and 21 in a normal 28 day cycle.You should try most during these days. This process is variable and can take upto a few months.
You should try natural conception for at least 6 months. If no result then seek medical attention for further tests.

On May 21, I had sex for the first time with my boyfriend. He used a condom and he asures me that nothing spilled, that it wasn t broken. I had just finished menstruating that day. I trust him, for sure. But lately I m having some cramps, like menstruation cramps but they don t hurt as much as it would when I am menstruating. I was just wondering if it is normal to feel these kind of cramps after protected sex. Have other women felt like this?

I am currently ending my period, so it s normal for me to have some diarrhea, but there has been a lot of bright red coloration to my stool, and the last time it was unusually bright and of a very strange texture that looked almost like the skin of a red pepper. I haven t eaten anything red that I can remember and this definitely isn t my menstrual blood. I have been noticing some occasional itchiness in that region, but no pain. I drank alcohol on Friday, so it may be related to that, but it s already Tuesday and it seems to only be getting worse. Should I call a doctor?
