  • You ovulate normally 14 days after the first day of your last period. Sperm can live a couple days before and after you have sex. If you had sex during that week theres a chance you can be pregnant. I would take a test.

  • wait until you miss your period for February then take a test. if you have the average 28 day cycle, that would be next tuesday or wednesday that you would test.

  • You will likely not get a positive until after you missed period if you are prego, I know its hard but just relax and wait and just remember practice is the fun part!

  • The tests won't work until you have enough of the chemical the test is looking for in your pee. That usually happens a couple days after your NEXT period is late. So if you have a 28 day cycle, that will be around February 12th. (The first day of your perios is Day 1 of your cycle). You'll still need to read the directions of the test you purchase. Some need you to be 5 days late, some will work at 3 days late.

    Then you need to take the test first thing in the morning. There is more of that chemical in your first pee of the morning so you are more likely to get an accurate result then.
