Re: Test now or wait?

After I stopped taking my pills back in June, I got my period 12 days after the last normal period I had while still on BCP. I though this was weird, but figured my body was adjusting without the extra hormones. I then got another normal period on July 19th (23 days later), which is my normal cycle. I am now pregnant, so it happened pretty fast, but I think my body became "normal" before that could happen.

I would say wait until you think you would normally get it, and if you don't, then take a test. But, if you think you will feel better, then take the test sooner, even though it might not be so accurate. Good luck!

My period was out of whack just after I stoped the pill too. Some women actually miss a period or it comes significantly late. I got pregnant the 2nd cycle after going off the pill. Good luck!

Re: Test now or wait?

Just buy a 2 pack, you wouldn't be the first woman to get pregnant right after coming off of the pill, since it can throw your system out of wack it wouldn't be that abnormal for you to have ovulated can just buy a 2 pack, that way you can test know, then if your period still doesn't come in a few weeks you can test again. It may be too early to test or it could just be a case of your hormones going crazy and readjusting after the pill.
