I have been super stressed so stressed Ive been having alot of body aches I also stop my BC after my period last month . As of now Im 4 days late but with those 2 things also being reason for late periods I was just wondering if it was you how long would you wait to test?
I had been told once that if you stop BC your period may not come.

  • i would wait up to two can take that long, or even up to a month for your body to correct itself from the BC.

  • If you don't want to wait that long, I always get the pregnancy tests at the dollar store. They are cheap and have worked very well for me.

  • I agree that you body may take some time to correct itself, but I wouldn't wait. The sooner you find out the better - so you can start taking extra good care of yourself and your new LO-to-be.

  • Sometimes those dollare store test are expired and can give you a false negative, usually CVS or whatever drugstore has their own brand pretty cheap. It doesn't matter why you are late, if you are PG the test will be able to tell by now, I wouldn't wait any longer! Good luck!

  • take a test now and every couple weeks after if you still dont start your period. a blood test would be best bc its easier to detect .
