I'm only 6 days late but I feel *different*. My cycle has been all over the place from stopping taking the pill so it may be that but I have a heavy feeling in my abdomen, a little like period pain but not quite and my boobs hurt which is a symptom I never suffer from when AF arrives. Is it too soon?

If your 6 days past AF being due then it's not early at all!! If you're 6 days post ov then you are definitely too early. If you're past AF due then definitely POAS. I was/am an addict though so would never have been able to wait that long!

What cd are you on? and what length have your last few cycles been?
I'd absolutely be testing now if you are 6 days late!
23/05/2013 at 09:10
I would definitely be testing at six days late.
23/05/2013 at 09:13
If your cycle has been 'all over the place' then you probably don't know how long YOUR cycle is. Being 6 days later than day 28 doesn't make you 'late' if you have a 35 day cycle IYSWIM.
Pee if you think it will settle your mind though.

I'd poas, you never know!
23/05/2013 at 09:27
If your AF is 6 days late, POAS!!!!!
even if your cycle is all over the place, it will put your mind at rest either way!

Id poas just to keep my mind at rest. X
23/05/2013 at 09:29
i would just so you know

As ducky has said it could just be erratic cycles after coming off the pill. When I came off my cycles got longer and longer every month.
But just to stop you wondering I would poas. At least then you know. There's nothing worse than delaying doing it and getting your hopes up with every day you are late just to get a bfn.
Fingers crossed we see a bfp announcement from you soon. I think we're due some, I haven't noticed many announcements lately.

I've had 28 day cycle, 30 day cycle, 35 day cycle, 28 day cycle cycle since coming off the pill. I really don't know a lot about this getting pregnant stuff. I didn't think 6 days was long but from reading some comments it seems I am wrong!
23/05/2013 at 10:25
6 days late is based on a 28 day cycle which I used to have before starting the pill
23/05/2013 at 10:36
6 days late is late. You can test from the day your period is due. Of course having had erratic cycles you don't know if you are actually 6 days late, although given your longest cycle to date was 35 days and you are now on 34 days I don't see any harm in testing and it will stop with "what if's" that are going through your mind at the moment.
23/05/2013 at 10:37
Well your longest is 35, so if your were to have that this month then you're still 1 day late, so perfectly acceptable time to POAS! Go do it!

The simple answer is - don't ask on here, just do it!
The more detailed answer is that it can take several months for your cycles to settle down after coming off the pill, so don't automatically take 28 days as your "norm" and assume that anything after that is "late". I think I had about 10 cycles after coming off the pill and, whilst the middle few had settled into 28 days, I had a random 25 day, 27 day and a 33 day cycle. When it came to the 33 day cycle, I obviously got my hopes up, but it just turned out I'd ovulated late that month (wedding stress I assume), which pushed AF back a few days.

I did it and it was a BFN :-( Disappointing but what can ya do? The silver lining is that we now know for sure this is what we want. Thanks for the advice girls

Sorry to hear that. At least it stops your mind wandering and getting your hopes up.
Fingers crossed it happens soon for you x

Sorry to hear it was a BFN, fingers crossed AF arrives soon and you can move on to the next month. It sounds as this is all fairly new to you so I hope you don't mind me saying this, the average time to conceive is 12 mths. Ok that does mean that some people are quicker than that but it also means that some people are a lot longer. Try not to get too anxious if things don't happen straight away.

Thank you. I would welcome any information/advice. There's so much to take in!

Sorry to hear it was a BFN :( Fingers crossed that you get a BFP soon :)
