    Default Advice/Opinions Please?

    Hey Girls!

    So to cut a long story short DP and I have not necessarily been "actively" TTC but we haven't been doing anything to prevent pregnancy either. I was on the pill for about 3 years consistently (never missed a pill) and finished my last sheet in July of this year. After that AF visit it was exactly 28 days until the next one in August and the same again in September both lasting for exactly 5 days. According to my tracking AF should've arrived Friday night/Saturday morning (as she normally does) but I've been having inconsistent pregnancy style symptoms since O (22nd September) like nausea, loss of appetite, headaches and fatigue. I tested early last week which I know earlier than I should've, and obviously it came back BFN but with AF not showing up yet I'm wondering if there's still a chance that I just tested too early for anything to be picked up?

    I'm sure that now I've posted this AF will show up but let me know what you all think anyway!

    I'd poas again and see if you get BFP. It can take your body a while to get back to normal after the pill. If you're worried, go to dr and get checked

    I was the same as you....went of the pill...was so regular you could set your watch to it. Then all of a sudden AF was 1 day late. Never ever happened before. I thought 'Oh maybe I miscounted or whatever' but deep down I knew something was amiss.

    And sure enough 3 days after AF was supposed to arrive I tested and BFP!

    So testing early last week was probably too early. With DS2 I tested the day before AF was supposed to arrive as I wanted to have a couple of drinks....it came back neg with FMU (first morning urine) so I happily drank away. Then the next day AF was supposed to arrive...and nope no AF. I tested and got a very strong and clear BFP.

    So its entirely possible you are UTD. I would get a First Response and test now. Especially if you were supposed to get AF Friday/Saturday and still dont have it....well it could be a BFP!

    I will probably test tomorrow after I can get to the shops. The only reason it seems strange that AF would be late this month is because I haven't had any issues after coming off BCP... My cycles have been perfect the past 2 months so I don't see why it would change this month...
