Another coming off the pill OPKs challenge

Hello Ladies,
From reading past posts I know this has been done over and over but couldn't find anything this specific so thought someone might be able to help. Came off cerelle three weeks ago and had no withdrawal bleed or AF but moods have been all over the place. I know it can take a while for cycles to return to normal but thought I'd try OPKs. For the last week they have been getting darker and darker with Sunday's pretty much matching the test line (sorry thrown the test away so can't post a pic), thought I'd test again on Monday and it would be even darker but no, now no line at all other than the test. Do you think this means I ovulated or just my body playing tricks on me?
Any help/comments greatly appreciated 😄

I would say it probably means you ovulated Monday or Tuesday. It definitely can take a while to settle back down. I stopped cerazette (same as cerelle) on 12 February, didn't ovulate til 11th March, period on 22nd March, quite light and short.
Then didn't ovulate until Cd 21 (11th April) so currently on cd28 7dpo.
Oh forgot to mention I thought I ovulated on 26th Feb as my lines were quite dark but in hindsight they weren't dark enough and then had really bad back ache on 11th March and did opk and it was super dark!

It might be worth carrying on with the OPKs if you haven't had a true positive. I only say this as since coming off cerelle both cycles I've had a nearly positive OPK around CD13 then a true positive at CD25. It was like my body started to get ready to ovulate, didn't manage it so had another go 12 days later. Hopefully you'll be lucky and you'll fall into nice 28 day cycles quickly and not have this 39 day bullshit that I currently have hmm

@Emma2803 I'm more or less a day behind you? I ovulated on 12th March, AF came on 23rd March, finished by 28th March, I had dark OPK's on 2nd and 8th April (I thought I ovulated then but I don't think I did) Then on 13-14-15th I got darker ones and finally my positive. I'm still unsure because it's my first proper cycle so I'm thinking I'm 3DPO. CD27. Hoping I get to 10DPO without AF showing! When is your AF due? X

I'm honestly not sure @hotpinkangel19 I would have thought 14 days after ovulation but last cycle it was early so I will just have to wait and see!
