Hey ladies! I finished my last pack of BC pills early last month and had my period as scheduled. My H & I have been actively TTC since then. I know that going off the pill it will take my body a while to adjust. Technically, I was suppoed to start my period on the 13th of this month, but it still hasn’t come. I took a test on Tueaday morning and it was a BFN. Is it possible I could have ovulated later since going off the pill and I just tested too early? Or do you think that it’s probably just taking my body a while to adjust and my period is taking it’s sweet time. Do you think I could actually be pregnant? I plan to test again in the morning, just as a precaution, as we’ll be heading to the lake for the weekend.

I’m in the same exact boat! Stopped my BC a week before the wedding when I finished the pack and still have yet to have my period. AF was due last Thursday. I took a test this morning and it came back BFN. I know I shouldn’t be frustrated as my body will take time to get to normal. I don’t think I’m preganant but I’ve heard stories where they really were!

Yes, your hormones are still regulating.
I’d pick up on charting and/or OPKs. Charting is the best as it will tell you when you ovulated.
Also, it’s a good idea to pick up the book TCOYF. You can find it on amazon.
Good luck ladies!!

My first cycle off BCP was 33 days long. Furthermore, I had been charting with FF and it had told me not to expect AF until a total cycle length of 39 days!! (it ended up coming early because my luteal phase was shorter than expected). If I hadn’t been charting I would have been going nuts trying to figure out if I was pregnant or not!

@whit11: My first cycle after coming off the BCP was 75 days (drove me crazy!) We started TTC the second cycle and got a BFP almost immediately. I think it just takes a little time to get back to normal.

same here, my first cycle off the pill was 44 days! I hated not knowing what my body was doing and started charting for the 2nd cycle, I am having a long cycle again this time around but at least I know I ovulated! and mayyyybeee I am pregnant 🙂
