@confusedbridehere:  I’d suggest to wait a few days just to be sure, however, if you cant wait, then go for it. use clear blue digital for serious confirmation, they also have tests now that show your estimated weeks along. Good luck !!

@confusedbridehere:  I would wait. If your OPK is accurate than you won’t get AF for a while still. The first cycle of BCP can be all kinds of crazy. I would give it some more time. Good luck!

I went like 40 days between going off BC and FINALLY getting my first period.

So I’d test with a cheapie!

I would wait a week and then test.

I got pregnant a few weeks after going off BCP (didn’t know it at the time) but I got my period like normal a few weeks later (at the normal time I would have gotten it)….so I didn’t test because I didn’t think I had missed my period!  I wasn’t using OPKs but just a heads up your body can do crazy things going off BCP so you might consider testing anyway even if you do end up getting your period!  They told me it happens all the time going off BCP.

I would wait and save your money (or just buy one cheap hpt to ease your mind). Keep using OPKs though… going off BCP makes your body do weird things. I had no period when I first went off the pill, and then had around a month of waiting and then FINALLY ovulated. I wasted lots of money of tests haha so… I’d say take a cheapy test, and keep on waiting and taking the OPKs. Your body could very well be gearing up to ovulate at a weird time, since going off BCP sometimes causes your body to take a while to regulate itself.
