The first few cycles when you come off birth control are not always regular.  It may take longer for AF to come.  Your body is coming off all those hormones so it’s very likely to alter your cycle.  I would wait 2 more weeks and if no AF then contact your doctor.

Some women have really irregular cycles after coming off BC, the spotting yesterday could have been ovulation, which will put you 1-2 weeks away from your period..

bananchik:  I am basically going throught he exact same thing right now…only my Husband and I are sort of trying, but not really trying right now.  I just stopped BCP after being on it for over 10 years and my last cycle (on the pill) was 9/24 and lasted 3 days.  I’m now on cycle day 49 (first month off the pill) and no period yet.  I thought I was getting it 10/20 the week it would have come if I was still on the pill, I had cramps etc, but it never started.  I’ve taken 3 tests and all BFN.  I meet with my doctor for my annual PAP today so I’m going to have her do a pregnancy test as well, so I guess I’ll know more after today…but it is really frustrating not having a period and getting negative tests! 

I know some people can take up to 90 days after coming off the pill, I’ve asked a few of my friends and most were in the 28-40 day range.

You should take a test. Being regular on the pill doesn’t mean you will be regular when you come off of it.

When I came off the pill, it took me +110 days to get a period. I tested about once every couple weeks just to be sure (luckily I had already purchased the cheapie tests so it wasn’t a huge waste of money). My 2nd cycle was over 45 days. So there is definitely a possibility you haven’t ovulated yet.
