I didn’t but people do. What cycle day are you on? You may not have ovulated yet. Most people have some wonkiness when coming off the pill.

It took me 6 weeks off of BC to get a period. You probably haven’t ovulated yet, sometimes it takes the body awhile to figure out how to ovulate on its own.

Are you temping?

I take it you are charting your temperature. That’s good 🙂 

CD22 is late but not unheard of. Especially coming off of the pill. It can do some strange things to you before your cycle regulates. 

It’s also possible you just missed your LH surge on the OPK. What time of day were you testing? How many times a day? You may just have a short window to catch the surge on an OPK.

From what I’ve heard, most people that come off of hormonal birth control seem to have an adjustment period, sometimes a few months of it.

I missed a period when I first got off the pill (April 1st), then got my overdue period on May 9th, and got my BFP June 2nd!

@confusedbridehere:  My OPKs look like that all pretty much everyday, other than the days right before O. And I never get a darker line in the afternoon, unless the morning OPK is positive. I had one almost as dark on CD 9 and didn’t get an actual positive  till CD 20.

@confusedbridehere:  Keep testing!  I got a positive OPK on CD25 after coming off the pill.  I thought for sure I was out for the month or that I would never ovulate. 

My tests look like that pretty much every day except for today when it was obviously positive. So positive that the test line showed up immediately, before the control line.

I didn’t chart or anything, but my cycles off the pill (after a decade on it) were 28 days, 26 days, 29 days, and then we got pregnant the 4th cycle.  Since my cycles were so regular, I assume I was ovulating all along, but again I wasn’t testing for it.

@confusedbridehere:  I O anywhere from CD19-22, normally. (This cycle doesn’t even really count. It’s a hot mess.) I’ve been off the pill for six months, but my doctor said that even at this time it can still be causing issues with hormones since your body has to relearn to produce everything on its own.
