Based on your positive OPKs ending on 3/11, you may have ovulated late, around 3/12, which would make you due for AF next week. I think you’re just having a long cycle after going of BC. The first cycle off of BC, the body goes through major hormonal adjustments and phantom pregnancy symptoms are common in the TWW. Whatever “normal” was for you on BC is not going to be anymore, you’ll find your new normal starts to set in over the next few cycles. I had the same thing happen to me, went off BC before and had “normal” cycles. Went off again and my cycles went crazy. I hope you get back to normal soon!

Nothing! You just went off BC, that’s pretty par for the course. I wouldn’t consider you “late” by any means. If your last positive OPK was around the 12 (although 4 days of positives seem extreme. are you sure they were darker or as dark as the control line?), then you would only be tops 8DPO. So, AF would not show up until at least another 5-6 days. 

Hope that helps.

This exact thing happened to me our first month TTC.  It’s very frustrating.  I don’t have an answer as to why but just wanted to let you know I can relate. Good luck!

@idaho1745:  Oh good, if the 8th had the darkest line hopefully your BD timing was good!

eta: So a darkest line on the 8th would mean O on 9th or even 10th, which would make AF due the end of the week/weekend.

@idaho1745:  Well that was January and I got my BFP in February so it’s all very confusing!

It’s pretty normal for your cycles to be off for a few months after coming off BC. You could have ovulated late, which would delay your period; you could not ovulate at all, despite the positive OPKs, which would potentially delay your period; or you could be pregnant. Without charting, you don’t really know. You can’t base your natural cycles on what your cycle was like while on BC. I hope you get a BFP this cycle, but if not, I hope your cycles regulate quickly.

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  I agree. OP, wait until next week and test again if AF hasn’t arrived.
