Coming off the injection is renound for confusing cycles for a few months. As last af was 10th October – it sounds like it could be starting to settle down.

The only way to know when to test is if you know when you ovulated? If you didn’t then all you can do is randomly test but obviously it could be to soon. If you are on course for a 28 day cycle then you could test now and it should give you a result but it may be that your cycle is going to be slightly longer.

If af does show – I would recommend testing for ov – no guessing games then. If you are start testing around CD10.

Good luck xx

I agree with ELP. COming on hormonal contraceptives can mean that your cycles are all over the place for a while. It was the case with me, they did eventually settle a bit but I guess I have a naturally 'random' cycle! As ELP said you could try testing randomly, if your BD lots then this is the only way to find out I guess. Alternative, you can check when you ovulate (next cycle if you dont get your BFP this time) and test 2 weeks after you get a positive ov test, good luck xx
