I recently got off the pill, about two months ago. My first period after being off the pill was a few days late.

When was the last time you had your period? Has it been more than 28 days since the start of your last period? If it has been and your period hasn't showed and the tests were negative, you can wait a few weeks and then retest if your period doesn't show up. Sometimes it takes our bodies a few months to get back into the swing of regulating our hormones after being on birth control pills.

If you still don't have a period in a few weeks and pregnancy tests are continuing to come up negative, I'd make an appointment with your doctor. When you take your HPTs, make sure you are taking them with you first urine of the day (since it's the most concentrated). Good luck!
