I’ve recently come off the pill and my cervical fluid doesn’t seem to fit the expected pattern. Why is this?
Cervical fluid can be affected for up to several months after coming off the pill (or other hormonal contraception). You may experience one of the following situations:
1. Very little or no cervical fluid, even around the time of ovulation
2. Ongoing fertile-quality cervical fluid that is watery or milky
3. Different types of cervical fluid with no obvious pattern
The good news is, that these side-effects from the use of hormonal contraception will usually disappear within a few months and a normal cervical fluid pattern (See Step 2 Part 1 of the program) should resume.
