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.

Hi Doctor, it is been three months since I have a surgery to remove only the fibroids. After my first menstrual cycle I had 7 days of bleeding which I had to wear pads. It was not heavy, when I went to see my gynecologist he put me on birth control. I began taking it two days before my menstrual period. I can say I do not have my period, but I still have painful cramps. Why do you think because I am very concerned about that.

Hi doc. Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex on december 25 2013 at around 3am. I have menstruation on that day and we both know that he ejaculated inside me. So in december 25 at 1pm I took 4 nordette pills. And on december 26 at 1pm I drink it again. My menstruation became light. On december 29 i had blood and i guess its withdrawal bleeding cause its brownish in color.. and lasted for about 4 days. How can it will affect my menstruation cycle? Thankyou!
