argh! I've got a 5 month old baby and haven't had a period since I gave birth as I've been breastfeeding. Had a contraception failure a couple of weeks ago and am now convinced I'm pregnant. Have that 'butterflies' feeling I remember from early on. I can't find anything on the Internet about how soon you can do a reliable pregnancy test if you're not getting periods. Does anyone know? Gulp. Thanks in advance!

If you have the butterflies feeling it should show up on a pregnancy test as you can test up to 3 days before your period with one of those super advanced tests.

Im sure I've seen somewhere that you can test 14 days after having sexsmile

hope you get the answer you want x

Thanks! Not sure what answer I want. Love being a mum and want more but the thought of two so young is really scary!

When are you going to test?

ShoreditchMum Thu 08-Sep-11 20:52:57

Well it was two weeks ago today. I thought its too soon to test but perhaps if I get one of the early response tests I should/could do it tomorrow?

I think if you went for a first response you can test up to 6 days early??

Fx for you smile
