I am not sure what is going on with my body. I am kind of embarrassed but not sure what to do except to go see my obgyn, but thought I would see what all of you thought first.

Here is what is going on. I got off of my birth control in February 2007, and of course I had regualar cycles to the exact day, which was really nice. I decided to get off the pill because we want to have a baby. Our theory is it will happen when its meant to. So I have been tracking my cycles and they seem to be between 29 and 35 days.

This month I am 4 days late, but last night I noticed some spotting. Nothing that even requires me to wear anything. It's only there when I wipe, and it's kind of brown. I have taken pregnancy test and they are negative. So what gives? If it's my period, then why is my body so out of wack and not consistant? If I am pregnant, which nothing idicates that I am as of right now, why the spotting? I really looking forward to having a baby one day, but having my cycles out of whak gets really frustrating, not only for concieving purposes, but I don't want to get my hopes up when I miss my cycle...to find out it was just REALLY late. Ahh...sorry for the blabbering, now you can see why I am frustrated. Thanks for listening.

Many women get frustrated when they get off the pill because it can take months, many months, for the hormones to regulate. This is all normal. Not to scare you, and this is a severe case, but I even heard of a woman who took two years to become regular after only being on the pill for a few months.

Some women get off and right away are having regular periods, but others take quite some time.

The best thing you can do is try to eat healthy, get lots of rest ... basically, give your body all it needs to "heal" ... it's had artificial hormones in it for a while now, and it will take it some time to work properly on its own.

I saw this over and over when I taught natural family planning ... it's common. Just give it time. I know it's frustrating, but you are normal. :)

If you present it to your doctor as a huge problem, he will most likely throw meds at you to fix it. I'd give your body a chance.

I have never been regular my entire life so when it was time to concieve it was very frustrating. My cycles were just all over the place. I finally started using an ovulation prediction kit and discovered after a few months that I wasn't even ovulating. Eventually we decided to try Clomid and one cycle did the trick. I know it isn't for everyone but if you give your body awhile to regulate and it just isn't happening then there are options. I wouldn't shy away from your OB either, if it is someone you like and trust. For now it does sound like it is related to the pill but it never hurts to make sure there isn't something else going on as well.

Mine was always brown. I have a history of endometriosis and my periods were probably the same as yours. I had a period my 1st pregnancy. The doc told me my due date and I told them but I had my period at this time so shouldn't I be due the following month. They told me some people have periods... Madeline was born 3 days before due date at 8lbs. 6 oz's and she'll be 9 y/o on Sun.!

Also, my 1st happened quickly which shocked the poop out of me! I quite the pill 3 months (after being on for ~11 years) before we married and he was in CA and I was in NY, so no hanky panky went on before. 8 weeks into our marriage I was like "I can't stand my new husband and I don't really care for you either...This tastes disgusting!..."

Also urine pregnancy tests are not very acurate when it is very early in pregnancy. Ask your doc for a blood test. I new for all 3 at 4-5 weeks gestation. Blood was + and urine's were inconclusive or -.

Good luck,

If you are Catholic or believe in the Saints St. Gerard is the Patron Saint of Mothers. I have had a couple friends pray to him after I gave them his prayer card. They became pregnant shortly after and this after they had several miscarriages!

I don't want to get your hopes up but you could be experiencing implantation bleeing. i'm not sure "when" implantation bleeing occurs in the cycle if you do get pregnant but i know that it sounds similar to what you are experiencing. i would call your doctors office and speak to a nurse. they might have you come in for a blood test.

Good luck!!!!

True, I forgot about implant bleeding. I had PAINFUL implantation, so the ER doc thought it was endo again but nope it was baby #2.
