  • When did you have it in Jan? Jan 1? Jan 30th? Whatever day your period started on, count ahead 28 days. Your period should be on day 29. If its not, you could be late. Take a test.

  • If it's been at least 2 weeks since you had sex the first time after that period, then go ahead and take a test. Without knowing when/if you ovulated, there's no way to be more accurate than that. Then if it's negative, keep testing once a week until you get a positive or your period starts.
