Experienced weight gain, tender breasts and nipples, light discharge. Stopped birth control pills. What is going on?

Hi. I quit taking my bc pills on August 21st at the end of my period. I had a unusual period from September 17-20. Very light and brownish in color the first 2-3 days. I've experienced weight gain and my breasts are tender and my nipples look different. Have taken a couple of hpt's but negative. My husband and I have been trying to conceive since August. I also have noticed more of a milky discharge the last couple of days. I suppose to start my next period October 17t. Any idea what may be going on?

Milky discharge from the nipples can be observed in early pregnancy as well as post ovulation. It may take a couple of months after coming off the pills to regain normal ovulation. As you are almost due for your next period, you may wait for it and get a HPT with a fresh early morning sample 3-7 days later if you miss it. If you wish for an earlier and better confirmation, you can get the serum beta-hCG titres estimated. Hope your query is answered. Take care.
