Girl, everyone on these boards are POASaholics! We say pee away!! Yes, cycles can be crazy but we all tend to pee anyway.

I’d probably wait a couple of days but I was definitely a POAS addict so who am I to talk? Lol… For what it’s worth (obviously it’s different for everyone), I went off the pill in May, had a 33 day cycle, and am fortunate enough that I am now 9 weeks pregnant. So I got pregnant on my second cycle off the pill. But during my first cycle, I had every pregnancy symptom in the book due to going off the pill. Such a confusing time! Best of luck to you!

If you have a stock-pile of tests, I’d test because why not? But if you don’t, I’d give it a week. Your cycle can definitely be weird coming off BCP, so who knows? Also, if you’re on prenatals (which you should be, if you’re about to TTC) they can length your cycle dramatically in the space of one month. My cycle went from a perfect 28 days to 32 days my first month on them and 34 days my second month on them.

laurenm78:  Yeah, I couldn’t find anywhere online that said lengthening of cycle is a defintive side-effect of prenatals, but I’ve read so many accounts of it, had it happen to three co-workers, and am experiencing it myself so I’d say it’s definitely possible.

laurenm78: I would pee on a stick at the blink of an eye if my period was late. 🙂 Certainly, you have some great self-control when it comes to POAS. More power to you!

laurenm78:  just FYI…”cheapies” imo are Wondolfo’s —- $18.99 for 50 strips on amazon :-p

If you go past this cycle … these are totally worth investing in…. 🙂

 

I might have to visit Rite Aid tomorrow…………
