I am 29 and have been on bcp for about 10 years with only short breaks. I stopped taking bcp on Nov. 28 after completing a pack. I had a normal withdrawal period the next week, beginning Dec. 1 or 2. On Dec. 31 I had light pink discharge when I wiped and then some brown discharge in a tampon, but nothing after that. Cramping also started on the 31st and has continued for a week with no further flow. I feel tired and sensitive to smells but am cautious that those symptoms could be in my head. I have very minor tenderness in only one of my breasts. I have had regular unprotected intercourse, but I do not know if I've ovulated. Hpt's have been negative. As a teenager before starting bcp my period was not exactly like clockwork, but I never missed a month. Actually my cycles were consistently shorter than 28 days. Several years ago I was off bcp for about 4 months and only had suspiciously light periods but I was not sexually active so pregnancy was not a concern, and an ultrasound ruled out ovarian cysts or other health concerns. However, I did not know at the time to inquire about whether I was ovulating. I have not read anything about implantation-like bleeding or cramping associated with post-pill amenorrhea. If someone can tell me otherwise, then I will be more trusting of the hpt's and move on. If not, then I will keep obsessing over taking hpt's thinking that my levels are just too low to detect.
