how soon can i take a pregnancy test

my husband and i rarely have sex (im ok with that, dont ask), but im still on the pill for the cramps and flow benefits. Well, i forgot to start it this month so i was taking the month off. Of course, my husband got in the mood on new years eve night and we had sex. I forgot that i wasnt on the pill this month and now i cant get my mind off of it. How long do i have to wait to take a test? when im not on the pill my cycle is very irregular. please help.

  • when you are suppose to start your period. You said you are on the pill so go by your pack on when you should start.

  • Two weeks post-coital would be the absolute earliest you could get a faint positive... best to wait 4 weeks.

  • if you just had sex on new years eve you should wait like two weeks from then because the sperm can stay there for 3-5 days.
