Re: i read somewhere that you are at your most fertile straight after stopping the pi
Yes, I have heard this too. It is possible that it is not that well known amoung doctors. It is also possible that it only happens to a small percentage of women, so it's not really that significant. I know when I came off the pill... those were the worst cycles I have ever had!! lol No bubba coming from those cycles that's for sure. But I didn't start getting mid-cycle bleeding (which happened to me pre-pill) until about a year after I stopped it. But then I got dx with PCOS and I started Metformin, and bye-bye to mid-cycle bleeding again.
Scooby, if you think you have PCOS - have you looked into diet and exercise changes you can make? They can be quite effective - maybe more so than medications in helping you gain a more regular cycle. And they are changes you can make without having to go see a doc and get a formal diagnosis, etc. A friend of mine never got a period, made the changes and viola, starting getting them regularly. Didn't happen to me, mind you - still irregular even after a year of Metformin... but it is worth a shot, and often the changes can be quite easy to make.
