@DivinelyDiscreet: I tested 3 days after AF was due and got a BFP! I would go ahead and test again and see what happens. If it comes back negative, I would make an appt with your GYN & see what’s going on. You could be pregnant or it could be that you’ve recently come off of BC. TEST!!

If you think you are late, you will likely get a BFP if you test now. Also, there is also the possibility that you ovulated early because of being fresh off BCP, and the spotting was implantation bleeding.

OR it could be that you are sick, and the stress of that is throwing your body for a loop, in addition to it adjusting to being off BCP. Only one way to tell!

I got my BFP the day my period was due. I had a 12 day LP and I didn’t have cramps nor had my temp had not dropped to 97.9, so I took it. I took a digital the next day, BFP too.

When I got pregnant I didn’t even think I was ovulating.  I took ovulation tests until day 22, never got a peak, then just gave up.  Then we DTD on day 24.  Day 27 started having cramps (which I now attribute to ovulation).  I tested at least five times starting between days 30 and 38 (didn’t think I even ovulated that month, but what the heck, right)?  Had spotting on day 35, thought it was my period, but it stopped right away.

Stopped testing and threw in the towel and decided to start OPKs again on day 45 thinking it was a “new cycle” for me.  Got a positive OPK.  Thought twice about it and took a pregnancy test and it was a BFP.  I ended up miscarrying, but that’s besides the point.  You just never know!!  You could have ovulated early/late…so hard to know in the first months going off the pill.

Good luck!

I had 4 negative tests; and decided to test once more when I was 4 days late and the nausea started. I got my BFP at 4 days late – even if I had used the brands that claim to be effective for up to 4 days prior your expected periods.  Sometimes there is just not enough hormones in urine…

But with your level of stress and all, that may be delaying your periods..

Hm… don’t think there’s an uncomplicated way to put this besides to say it was a really weird month for me, but since I charted, I knew exactly if it would be worth testing and when. Suffice to say it was 3 wks and 4 days since my last period when I got the BFP. Faint, but there. DH was skeptical, so took a Clear Blue Easy Digital the next day (3 wks 5 days)– another BFP.  Have you been charting, or thinking about charting? It can be a really awesome way to take the guesswork out of things.

I tested using the strips the day my period was due and it I had a very faint line.  No false positives!!

@DivinelyDiscreet:  Are you SURE when you ovulated and when AF is due?  (Are you using OPKs and/or charting?)  I ask because very few women have “regular” 28-day cycles.  It is pretty common to have a “normal” cycle your first month off of BCP, then your body adjusts to your natural cycle (which can be shorter than 28 days or significantly longer).  My first real visit from AF after going off BCP was 3 days of light spotting – I knew it was AF because I chart – so you *may* have had your period and didn’t recognize it as such.  In that case, you would be in a new cycle now.
