when can i test? im 5 weeks post portum

I had unprotected sex on November 1- 4 1/2 weeks post partum...i am now 5 1/2 weeks post partum and was wondering when i can take a test and get an accurate result...if i take it and it does say pregnant, could that be from some of the hormomnes left in my system??

  • no, if you have hcg in you, you are pregnant!

  • Well i think you can have residual HCG for up to around 6 weeks after the baby is born. I would say wait at least 2 more weeks, that should give you a pretty accurate result.
