Not ovulating


Went to my GP this morning as you advise. He did a urine test and blood tests. He says I' m not ovulating. I stopped the pill (Minerva) on 18 August. It' s been 37 days since last period. He says I should only start being concerned after six months  so in Jan I will go back to see him.

Pardon my ignorance? What would be the reason for me not ovulating? I got my period while on the pill and prior to the pill, my periods were regular and quite heavy (often bleeding for 8 days.)

please explain.

It can take a few months for your body to adjust to being off the Pill and for your own hormones to take over again.
