Since your cycle could possibly be way out of whack due to coming off BCP, I’d just give it two weeks and take a test if AF hasn’t come already.

I also think you should test in 2 weeks if AF has not come.  My first cycle off BCP was 49 days! I was charting tho so I could see that my ovulation was late (cycle day 33).

In terms of looking out for symptoms, for a lot of people AF symptoms can be a lot like pregnancy symptoms.  The months I didn’t get a BFP I had more symptoms than when I actually did get my BFP!

I guess unfortunately its just the waiting game for you!  I hope the wait goes quickly 🙂

It’s less to do with your cycle length and more to do with when a test could detect pregnancy.  It usually takes 1-3 days for a fertilized egg to makes it’s way to the uterus and implant and then generally about 10 days from then for your body to have enough HCG for a pregnancy to detect, so two weeks.  There are people who have positives earlier (I got my BFP with my DS about a week past implantation), but it’s rare and since you have no idea when AF is due, it’d be like peeing on money.

@Mrs.Maeby:  Coming off BCP, some women ovulate right away, some it takes a couple weeks (maybe your case?), and some don’t ovulate that first month at all (could also be your case).  You can’t really predict what your body will do.  If you’re in the middle case, and you just ovulated, which is completely possible, then you definitely have a chance of conceiving.  Since you weren’t actively trying before or monitoring your cycle (charting or using OPKs), you don’t have any clues as to when, or whether, you have or will ovulate, and you likewise have no clues as to whether you were fertile around the time you had sex.  Hence the two week wait.  If you are pregnant, though, a test will most likely be accurate in two weeks.

I would say wait 19 days to test.  The reason for this is that sperm can live 5 days and it can  take 14 days for after conception for a BFP to show.  If you ovulate 5 days from now you’re still looking at a TWW from that day.  If you can tolerate horomonal BC, you can take Plan B which will delay ovulation, but won’t protect you if you’ve already ovulated.

I hear ya.  I had a short anovulatory cycle right after coming off the pill, but it went back to being like clockwork the next month.  If you haven’t done so already, look into basal temping.  It kept me sane knowing when and if I ovulated.

yes, that is indicative of ovulation and fertile period!  I am impressed you can “read” your cervix.  I chart but can’t quite figure that out yet! Talk to Darling Husband about BD!  I’ve heard you may in fact be better at timing for your first cycle off, so if you are feeling ready this might be the perfect time!
