How can I know if I'm pregnant if I haven't had a period yet since childbirth 6 months ago?

I had my first child 6 months ago, and now I think I might be pregnant again, but I can't be sure since I haven't "missed" my period yet since I haven't resumed them since my child's birth!

  • Take a EPT test. If you are it will show positive. But either way you should call your OB.

  • The only way is to test and if negative then test again in two more weeks. Why do you think you might be pregnant? If it is simply the missing period this is very common after giving birth especially if you are nursing your child.

  • First ask yourself these questions: Are you breast feeding? If so theres your answer!
    Is there stress in the house? ,What are you eating? It may not be a if you are pregnant. You may want to take the test but either way, you should go in to a doctor,clinic or hospital and explain your feelings on the subject and get them to run a Blood test first And then i nothing then ask them to run a batery of test. Hope this helps.

  • About 2 weeks ago my hubby and I had some 'fun'. I have been crazy irritable (just like last time I was preggo), had a little spotting yesterday, waves of nausea through the day, and headaches.

  • Take a test. If it is negative and you still want to know Call your Dr and see if they will do a blood test.
