when can i take a test? adult content

How soon after you begin to notice pregnancy symptoms can your take a test? I have no idea when I actually could have conceived. I just had a miscarriage on the 8th of December or so the doctors said. My pregnancy symptoms had went away, but have found today that my stomach is feeling awfully weak, my breasts are swollen and the areolas are much larger ( I also noticed a drop of milk!), my lower back is aching, and I am absolutly repulsed by the smell or sight of food.

  • I guess now but there is a chance that you could get a false pos because it is only 2 weeks since your mascarriage.....I would talk to your doctor about it.

  • My hcg levels actually dropped to. 5.59 so they considered that a negative. They were a 12.78 two days prior to that.

  • 10-14 days after ovulation

  • I don't know when I ovulated. I check my cervix and even after the miscarriage it remained high, soft, and closed.

  • considering it was only two weeks after your m/c I seriously doubt you would be. It takes a full cycle for everything to get back on track where a pregnancy would stick.

  • Your cycle may be starting over. Since my first child I have pregnancy symptoms as PMS symptoms. Morning sickness, swollen tender breasts, pretty much what you are feeling now is what I go through once a month when I am not pregnant.

  • I had taken my first one too soon and thought I was not pregnant only a week and a half later to take another and find out I was indeed pregnant! It was a shocker lolz

  • I would wait till mid January to test. But you should talk to your doctor about what is going on right now. Good luck and I am sorry for your loss.
