I recently went off BCP and my DH and I are basically NTNP. My first true cycle after the pill was 36 days. I am now on my 2nd cycle after the pill and I am on day 47 with no sign of AF coming anytime soon. I realize that my cycles are bound to be crazy after the pill, so at first I just wrote this one off. But the past 2 days I have had a constant mild nausea, which is very unusual for me.
We had unprotected sex on July 29, (CD 31) I am wondering if it's possible that bc of going off the pill, I could be having a super long cycle and ovulated the first few days of August? I've gotten negative HPTs but if that timeline works, it'd could still be early to test... Would it even be possible to have nausea as a symptom without being pg enough for a positive test?
I'm probably deluding myself right? If I'm out I just wish AF would show so I could stop torturing myself. I've stocked up on .88 cent walmart HPTs so I can pee to my heart's content in the meantime.
coming off the pill is very hard on your body and most docs tell you to take a cycle to get back to regular.. lol but most of us dont.. hope your cycle shows true for you.. and those walmart tests are not sensitive at all... in my opinion they suck.. but who knows cant wait to see them fxing...
...coming off the pill can be tough, depending on the type you were on. They all have hormones in them that our bodies become dependant on and once we stop, it can wreak havoc inside. The good news is that MOST people can bounce back within 3 months but they say it can take up to 18 months to regulate.
I stopped the BCP in May and got pregnant at the end of July ... but I was using OPKs to make sure I was ovulating (my 1st cycle was 27 days, my 2nd cycle was 24 days) ... I would recommend that, so at least you know when you're ovulating and if you're not ovulating, you can call your doctor right away.
Hormonal BC is great to prevent pregnancy but it can really mess with the body.
It's very possible that you ovulated late and are experiencing possible early pregnancy signs. It could be too early to test even, so I would test and if it came up neg I would retest in a week if still no AF and repeat until I either get AF or a positive test.

Thanks ladies. Still no AF, I'm going to keep testing until she shows. I'm still feeling queasy, which is weird but I'm starting to think it may be "phantom symptoms". When I finally start a new cycle I am going to start charting, even though we're not really TTC, so I can at least confirm ovulation. My first cycle off the pill I had tons of very obvious CM, so I foolishly thought I could tell by that. This cycle was totally different.
Queasyness can be a pms sign as well. I remember when I stopped the pill to ttc my oldest son, I got so excited because I felt nauseous the first cycle... Tested, neg, period comes. The next cycle, nauseous again, test neg and period!!! Anyways, long story short, several months I got those same signs. My cycles were actually short after going off the pill. Then they started to get longer after 4 months, and finally got BFP on the 7th cycle. Funny, that was the cycle I had no nausea or other signs. I felt fine, only thing that was off was that my breasts were tender.. only cycle I didn't test before expected period! Waited til 28th day and tested that night when no af.
So, you may feel weird signs just because your body is trying to adjust itself to itself and not having artifical hormones leading it..
