If I were you I’d take the test…yesterday.  Seriously, why wait?  They don’t cost that much and at least you’ll know one way or another.  You should find out sooner rather than later, because if you are, you’ll want to get a prenatal exam and start some vitamins.

ETA: and whatever other things pregnant ladies need to prepare (I’m not pregnant, so take this with a grain of salt…)

yep, take one right away, if it has been a month and you have regular cycles, it should be able to detect it if you were pregnant!

take one right away.  It COULD be your body trying to get used to cycles as well, that is entirely possible.  But you want to know asap, Id test right now.  If its been a month since your last period, it should be able to detect

I would say take a test if you want to know, but when I stopped taking my bc after taking it for 7 years my cycle was wack. I was always regular even before the pill, but after getting off of it I would go 45-50 days between my cycles. It took an entire year for everything to even out.

Sometimes when you get off b/c your cycle can get a little wacky. I know that happened to me.  But, I also think you should just go buy a test. You may be pregnant and it would be good to just know either way

I’m pregnant and I didn’t have any symptoms that made me think I was pregnant at first…so you never know. Might as well test.

Mine got whacky after I stopped. I did something similar where I started slacking in taking them and then finally stopped all together. The first time after that I didn’t get my period for 6 weeks. I bought a pack of 2 pregnancy tests took the first one right away and then when I was about 2 weeks late I took another one and still wasn’t pregnant. I called the ob and she said it was really common not to be regular when going off.  I finally got it at the 6th week and the next cycle was about 5 weeks.

I would definitely test, since you’ve technically “missed” your period in the beginning of March.

If you got periods consistently on birth control, then you should have gotten a period after your last pack. But since you stopped taking them mid-way through the pack, it could definitely be that your body is just a little “off.”

It definitely varies by person. Some people get their period like clockwork after they come off the pill, and for others, it can take up to a year to be regular again! So it could be something, or it might be nothing at all! 🙂

Regardless, I’d take a test now, and see!

Are you guys going to TTC now that you are married and off birth control?

Just go to a pharmacy and pick up a test kit and take the test today, and there really is no “6th sense feeling” that tells you you’re pregnant otherwise people wouldnt waste money on pregnancy tests.

Just an opinion from the other side of the spectrum 🙂 My last period was February 6-10 and I never started taking my pill again after that. I’m STILL waiting for my period and it’s been way over 1 month, nearly 2. It really does usually take some time for your body to figure out your real cycle again. Good luck!

@totheislnds: great! either way, i hope it is news you are happy/grateful for. 

For what it is worth, I can totally relate to the hesitation – wanting to know but not really wanting to.
