@roweboat:  You can test up to 4 days before you miss your period so you are fine to test now.  I would.  But to be honest, it is really common that your cycle be weird the first month off of the pill.  If it were me I’d test anyway because I am a worry wart too and I’d hate to worry about it for days.

@roweboat:  I got a positive two days before my period was due. However, if you’re just coming off the pill that can really mess with the length of your cycles.

I’d suggest getting a few dollar store tests. You can test, but its super common for your first few months off birth control to have super long cycles.

I got off the pill 4 weeks this Sunday. We tried just pull out a few days after, but we were both so uncomfortable with it.. It just doesn’t seem like enough protection. So if I don’t get my period this weekend, I might take one too.

I would test just to be sure.  Not to scare you, but I got pregnant the first month off the pill.  I took a test the day I should have gotten my period on the pill, and I got a BFP.  It will give you peace of mind to test.

If you do test, know that even if you get a negative result, you could still be pregnant.  It takes a while for the hormone to build up.  I tested the day AF was due and got a negative.  Tested 5 days later and it was positive. 🙂

@roweboat:  It was consistent when you were on the pill because the hormones in the pill regulate your cycle (you don’t ovulate, and have an artificial AF when you take your placibos).  It took 52 days for AF to show up when I stopped the pill, so you might not have ovulated yet.  But believe me I tested many times!!  I even went to the doctor and had a blood test done because I was so paranoid.  Good luck!
