In fact, I rarely get AF anymore. Cny cycled me even without it. Due to bad communication, my first cycle was canceled. My lining got up to about 5 or 6, so I did bleed after that one. But I don't use bcp in my protocol anymore, so yours is a little different from mine.
After my 2nd cycle last summer, I needed hysteroscopy, and the dr did d&c. I did have AF after the d&c bleeding ended, but my 3rd cycle was several weeks later. No AF in-between. I'm not likely to have AF before my next cycle, either. Remember, even women well past menopause can cycle and get pg, so AF is not a pre-requisite.
Your clinic sounds like they are ok with no AF, but as the pp says, perhaps you will still get it.
I know it's an anxious time for you. You're due for some good luck!
are you doing any visualization? I was told that helps, but I had it difficult time to do it.... Try. And it make sense "what you believe, you become. You become what you believe." I remember a motivational speaker who spoke at a graduation ceremony said this. I also got a sheet with alot of thing. It made sense to me. And I believed everything that was written on that sheet. Unfortunately, I lost the paper when I needed mostly.
stick embie, stick, stay comfortable and healthy for the next 8.5 month. Mrs.M I read somewhere when you do pg test, you are already one month pg. Isn't that great?
It wasn't til my 4th day after stopping BCP (already on Lupron) that AF came. I, too, was nervous and happened to have an appt at clinic. Was told sometimes you don't - and that would be ok - what was most important was whether you were baseline or not. She did believe (from my internal u/s) that AF would come the next day, but didn't seem concerned either way. It did come next day (4th day) and all is well. It will be for you, too!!!! Happy thoughts!
I always thought that af comes for sure after stopping bcp. And even, one RE told me that it doesn't mean you get AF that you will be pg with those eggs. 80 years old can get Af. This was when I was shopping for excellent RE with OE (higest fsh 14 but very high estrogen. I told her "but I get AF regularly every 28 days" and her answer was the above. And then, I said oh then the 80 years lady can get AF if she is given bcp.
I did not get AF after stopping BCP's for two of my successful cycles. I just went in

5 days after stopping BCP's, had my US and BW done and was able to start estrogen support. I just did not build a lining with the pill. So, if you don't start within 5 days of stopping the pill, go get your US and BW done and you may be good to go.
till now. Tomorrw it will be 5th day after stopping the bcp. for peace of mind I just want it to come. But also it is excellent to know there are successful cycles without AF. It is just that I was told it is expected AF to come after bcp is stopped.
