Cording to consumer reports about 5-6 years ago Walmart generic preganacy tests had the most accurate results. Hope that helps. If you skipped a period then it wouldn’t hurt to take another test at your first uniation of the day, that gives the most accurate result. You can double check now or wait until April 11.

Are you trying to get pregnant (aka off birth control)? When was your last period? Are your periods generally regular? If you were due for a period in early March and didn’t get one, you’re quite late. If you had regular cycles and were pregnant, it should be positive by now. But if you have long or irregular cycles, you’re still on your last cycle. If you aren’t sure when you ovulated, if can be hard to know when a pregnancy test might be positive.

Gotcha. Sounds like you’re having a long cycle after coming off bcp. Which isn’t unusual. Unfortanely, it means that you don’t know when you ovulate or when you’ll get a period/get pregnant. Personally, I’d test once a week until my period started but I’m sure there are women who would test every day. Just a personal preference.

weightwatchers152:  Wait about 2 or 3 days into when your next cycle is then take it. It’s possible that your period just skipped a month. Don’t sress about it too much or can trick your mind and body into thinking its pregnant.

weightwatchers152:  I have been following your posts and I can’t imagine the uncertainty of when my period will show/if I’m pregnant, etc. I know others have mentioned it, but unless you are tracking ovulation – there is no absolute way to know when you will start your first period after coming off bc. Some ladies have 75 day cycles, some have very short, some annovulatory! (You wouldn’t just “skip your period” one month. Even with annovulatory cycles you have a withdrawal or breakthrough bleed).  I would highly recommend reading Taking charge of your Fertility and/or tracking your ovulation signs with Fertility friend. There is a chance you haven’t even ovulated yet and af still isn’t on her way! It might save you some of the worry as well as money buying all of those tests! I am around if you have any questions!
