Did you get one that was close to positive?  I was never able to get a positive OPK, and I definitely was ovulating.

I think a LOT of women don’t ovulate first cycle off BC. I don’t think I did (since I never even got my period in April). KU in May, though (first cycle actually TTC)

@confusedbridehere:  

I ovulated by first cycle off.
I don’t use OPKs though so I’m not sure if that would have shown up for me or not.

I probably wouldn’t test at 25 days, I would probably wait another week or so. Do you know how long your cycle is when you’re not on the pill? I’m usually ~32 days so I would wait until then for myself. That being said, since it’s your first cycle off your cycle might be really off.

If you can, I’d wait until your expected period on Wednesday. It’s really tough to figure out what’s going on the first month off BCP. I know people who have gotten pregnant right away, and I know women who didn’t ovulate until 5-6 months after BCP.

It’s normal to ovulate very late and have a long cycle first off BCP. I didnt ovulate until CD 26 my first cycle! (Now 5 cycles later I usually O on day 17 or so)

Edit to add – I’d keep using opks until you get a positive or you get AF.

@confusedbridehere:  Keept testing for ovulation! I got my positive OPK on CD27, first month of birth control.  I may have simultaneously been taking a wondfo pregnancy test here and there…hehe

@confusedbridehere:  I thought I was too late too, I was sure of it.  I also thought I would never get EWCM and then I did.  I jumped up and down in the bathroom at work when I saw my positive. I can’t even imagine a positive pregnancy test either. I recommend getting some clearblue tests with the smiley face to use as a backup when you think you have your positive on the wondfo.
