Q&A: Can I conceive even though I've had no period since stopping the Pill?
We are trying to get pregnant. I went off the Pill about two months ago, and I have not had a menstrual cycle since then. For a couple of days I had a colored discharge. Could this be a menstrual cycle? Is it still possible to conceive if my regular menstrual cycle has not come back?
Yes, it’s possible to conceive before a real period, assuming you ovulate.
Generally, a menstrual cycle (bleeding) happens only after you ovulate. If you fail to ovulate (it’s often delayed after being on the Pill), you can have some dysfunctional bleeding, which could look like what you had. Give it some time. If you’re not cycling normally in another month, check with your healthcare provider. I usually give such disorder a good three months to straighten out.
