    Cycles often get really wacky after coming of BC…and it could take that same 3-4 months (or more) to get to that point as your body regulates or reacts to the change of coming off a daily hormonal pill. 

    HPTs are usually really good indicators (although there are the very rare circumstances that they don’t register a pregnancy) so I would just keep testing every few days until you either get your period or have your appointment. What kind of tests are you using? FRERs are typically considered the best.

    maybe you ovulated late or sometimes longer cycles just happen for no reason.  if you are taking HPT and are at least 16 days past ovulation, it should show up if you are pregnant.

    i went off BCP 3 months before i started TTC, everything seemed perfect.  as soon as we started TTC, my cycles started going wonky.  who knows whats happening.

    shellybee13:  I def suffered some insane pregnancy symptoms last month after coming off BC.  It’s a toss up, and you really won’t be able to tell anything til the 18th.  I know how you feel, I don’t have an appt til the the 21st and there are some things I need to address!  But what can you do.

    When I went off BC last time I skipped a period. With 2 negative pregnancy tests I would say no, you aren’t pregnant.

    shellybee13:  If you were going to start trying to conceive AFTER your wedding, why did you not use a backup method of birth control? I’m a little baffled.

    But it’s not abnormal to skip periods after quitting oral contraceptives. I didn’t have a period for 6 months after i stopped the first time.
