Preggies soon after Pill, is that normal
Wow I'm surprised I feel pregnant so soon after stopping my pill. I stopped mid September. And travelled from the US to SA early Oct, when I didn't see my periods I thought it might be because of the jetlag. I came back a week ago feeling nauseous ans again I thought well it's the long trip. Today I went to the DR and he said I might be 7-8 weeks, I never expected it so soon afterwards.
I thought it will take a couple of months before my bloodstream is cleared of the hormones from the pill. I expected it to happen in Jan maybe.
How did that happen so soon??
Thanks everyone for your input.

Everyone is different. Some people fall pregnant straight after stopping the Pill.
