  • Well, no matter what you should have started...most tests can detect a pregnancy roughly two weeks after conception. So just count two week or so (make it two and a half to be safe) and then test. If you don't start after FOUR weeks, then test again. If you gave birth nine weeks ago, then bled for three...you should approaching your first actual period in the next couple of week anyway if you aren't breastfeeding. So that is my advice. Good luck!

  • I would think that you are most likely ok, though it is still a possibility. Try not to worry about it too much. Even if you are not breastfeeding it may still take some time for your period to return. Just test in a couple of weeks like the pp mentioned.

  • Try not to worry. I thought I was pregnant around 5 months after my son was born because I still hadn't gotten my period back. Turns out I wasn't pregnant, just my body was having a little trouble getting back to 'normal'. Call your ob or take a HPT in a week or two. Good Luck!
