I've been on the pill for six years, but last month my parter and i decided to start trying for a baby as we're getting married soon. Trouble is, I won't be able to tell if my period is late because the last one I had was when I was on the pill. We've already had unprotected sex since stopping the pill. I've heard that when you come off the pill your next period can take longer to come than normal. And looking back I should have waited for my normal periods to return first and then I could tell if I was late, or if my period just hadn't arrived yet. So now I'm unsure if I'm pregnant or not. Two weeks ago, I had some mild period like cramps, and I felt so tired and drained and my boobs were quite tender. Then last week, my nipples were so tender, almost painful against my bra, and my boobs look bigger. But i wasn't sure if all that was just my body getting used to not being on the pill. It's been five weeks since my pill period and I was just wondering if anyone had any experience of this and could tell me when I should start looking at it as a missed period. Thanks in advance.
