Someone help me figure out when to test, please :( My periods are very irregular so I can't base it off of that.

I had unprotected sex on July 3rd.
My periods are always irregular...I will skip months at a time and then periods ranging from 3-9 days long so I have no clue when my period would be due.

How soon could I take a test?

  • It takes atleast 2 weeks to show up on a test from the day of conception from what i have been told by the pharmacists. So, i would test on the 17th :) I tested 16 days after unprotected sex and i was pregnant with my son.

  • Just wait a month. Why would you want to find out so early? Makes your pregnancy seem to last forever.

  • I had really irregular periods as well just like yours. I thought wad hoping that I was pregnant cuz we had been trying for awhile. So I had gone in to get my progesterone checked to see if I had ovulated. Well I found out I was pregnant. At my first ultrasound it turned out I was 9 weeks already. So its really hard for women like us but I would probably wait til either the end of July or maybe the beginning of Aug. GL hon.
