    Cramps but no AF

    My husband and I are TTC I took my last BC pill in September, I had my last period September 13th. I should have had my period October 10th. I've been having cramps since October 8th but no period. I took a HPT Friday which was negative. Saturday I had a bit of brownish discharge but only on TP when I wipe very minimal. Today most cramps have subsided and so has the discharge. So did I test to early? Could my body still be trying to regulate its self?? I was on BC for 10 years for the last two years I've been on sprintec. Before getting on BC I was not sexually active and did not keep track of my cycle ( kind of silly I know!) but I knew when I had cramps AF would follow in a few days so I had no need. While on BC I was very regular, I could tell you the exact days I would start and stop. Should I wait and test again in a week or two or should I call the dr.??

    Remember, while on birth control, your body did not control when you had your period, the hormones in the pill did. I think your body is still trying to regulate itself and until it figures that out, you will be irregular.
