My husband and I were waiting a few more months to conceive (he’s finishing up his third year of law school so we’d rather he be out and done with the bar and working before we have a little one running around). So I was still on the pill up until last month. I only used a week of my pack due to some weird symptoms + antibiotics, and now my ob-gyn and I have me off them for good. However — I haven’t have a period in ohhh about 44 days. Never had one last month. Around the time they were taking me off the BC I took a bunch of pregnancy tests (the weird symptoms included some leg swelling we thought could be early pregnancy related) both in office and at home. They were all negative. But now it’s been about three more weeks and I still haven’t gotten my period.
I’m going to retest tonight, but has anyone had weirdness like this happen to them when going off the pill?

Funky cycles are common after stopping BC, but I would test anyway just to be sure.

there are plenty of ladies on the bee who took awhile for AF to come back after stopping BCP.

Okay. I’ve been on and off it before and never had weirdness like this, but I usually go off it after a full cycle of pills. I get really emotionally invested in the testing (not quite ready for it to be positive, but then I get excited anyway and it’s kind of a letdown, etc.) so I didn’t want to just test willy nilly but I know that’s probably my best option.

My first cycle off the pill was over 3 months and my 2nd was a month and a half. It’s very common to have long or weird cycles after going off the pill. I invested in some cheap Wondfo pregnancy tests from amazon since I had to test every month I didn’t get AF.
