  • You take a test when you are few days late(usually 5 days or more) on your period.

  • what's a depo shot? You can get pregnant before you get your period since menstruating means that you're NOT pregnant (uterus is losing it's lining). It's hard to know when you're ovulating in the best of circumstances, but when you're breastfeeding your hormones are all out of whack anyway. I'd ask your doctor for a test due to your circumstances. Good luck!

  • Go ahead and take one now. If it comes up negative wait another week and take another one to be sure. Good luck mama. Breastfeeding did not stop me from getting my period, I was back on my same schedule like a week after I stopped bleeding from the birth.

  • about 2 weeks after the date you had sex you should start testing.
