You just got off the pill so you dont know what’s normal for your cycle and neither do your apps. You likely aren’t late, you just didnt ovulate when the app predicted you did. Those apps are not accurate. They are just guessing. 

The symptoms you are feeling are likely PMS. if they were pregnancy related then you would be getting a positive test. That being said, it doesnt mean it’s too late and AF is coming. 

I would wait a week, test again, if still negative, wait another week, etc.

Sometimes cycles can be long after coming off the pill and take awhile to regulate.

I reccomend getting some opks to help predict ovulation. Then you can make a better estimate to when AF should come. (Roughly 14 days after a positive opk)

If your period is late, then it’s definitely not too early to receive a positive test. Most likely, your cycle is just off and you’re not pregnant. Home tests are pretty accurate if taken correctly.

Symptom spotting is tempting but doesn’t actually show anything. I wrote down “symptoms” many months when I was negative and when I actually got pregnant I had no symptoms at all until week 5-6 (and I had already confirmed the pregnancy by then).

Another vote for your body just regulating.  If you were truly that “late” you’d be testing positive by now – you must have ovulated late.  When I came off BC I ovulated anywhere from cycle day 12 to cycle day 21 depending on the cycle, and my progestorone got so high before my period I SWORE I was pregnant – extreme boob soreness, fatigue, emotional, etc.  But unfortunately those are all also symptoms of PMS and with my body just coming off the pill, my hormones were all over the map.  If you’re really trying to track, I’d recommend temping so you can confirm ovulation, in conjunction with OPKs.  Good luck!

I also stopped my BC in February, had withdrawal bleedinga few days after. Completely Skipped my period in March, and got a positive test when I was 2 weeks “late.” I am now a little over 5 weeks and everything is looking great! Doctor said I must have ovulated very late.

If you are having symptoms caused by pregnancy you should be receiving a positive test!
