Off pill for a year, irregular cycles and now period only 2 days?

I have been off Triphasal for a year now. Ever since I went off the pill I have had irregular cycles. I have been on clomid up to a triple dose in November and still nothing. This month my cycle ran for 40 days - the longest it has ever been - and my period lasted 2 days. I've got quite a bit of tummy cramps and it justs seems very strange???? Please could you give me some advice....

It sounds like you are not ovulating. If the Clomid has not succeeded in getting you to ovulate, you would need to try something else.

Best wishes

The two day period was it alot lighter than your usual one, then it can be inplantation bleeding, to find out, you can do a HPT to find out if it was,

To all other ladies: I hope you will have your wish soon, You've mentioned that a year seems so long, and yes it is, I have tried for 12 months to fall pregnant, did in the 12th month only and had a miscarraige in November, I'm hoping that I don't take 12 months again, but if it does, I'll just hang in there and know that someday I will have my miracle.

I don't understand it as my first child I was off the pill for 3 months and fell pregnant and now it take me longer. I was told that it could take up to a year for the pill to work out your system. Keep in contact and maybe soon we will both be pregnant.

Thanks, Me.

I'm also trying to fall pregnant and get quite despondent with all these cycles that don't know what they want to do. My doc says the pill can work out of your system anything between month and 6 months, I just think a year seems so long! Anyway, I suppose I'll just have to hang in there, try to think positive and hopefully something will happen eventually. Last month I ovulated 6 days late, so it is even difficult to monitor when in my cycle is my most fertile.

Hi there

My cycle has done the same thing. I know this might sound funny but my last cycle was 36days and I was on for about 3 days and the last day it was a brownish colour. The reason why I stopped the pill (last year end May) is to try fall pregnant. Which seems to be taking some time. I also had cramps. I was told thats it's still the pill working out my system.
