Always when waiting to start treatment!

So I have been on The pill for the last month with my last pill being on the 24th of December as to time AF to arrive after Christmas so that I can start my short protocol IVF. So for the last 2 daysnive had old brown blood and spotting but nothing consistent! I'm meant to start treatment on day 2 and knowing my luck AF will arrive properly tonight meaning should start Sunday when the clinic is closed..

Never had the pill before, onlybused provera to induce them so I dkntknowif this is common with the pill but I thought it was meant to come fairly quickly after the last pill

According to my consultants, your period should start 3 to 7 days after you stopped the BCP (5 days here).

Thanks, well it's been 5 days. Sorry for TMI but had 2 days of like a normal period amount but was all old blood. So that was confusing. However had some red last night, went to clinic this morning and start meds tomorrow

For me it was spotting for one day, then very light period for one day (which the clinic considered CD 1) and heavy spotting for another day.

Good luck with your cycle,
