  • You could be ... i'm not sure how long it takes to get regular ... everyone is different.. just wait it out and if you feel like you need a test then go in.. but if you don't want to be pregnant again.. maybe try not to have anymore accidents..

  • I don't know if you're more fertile right now, but ANY time you have unprotected sex there is a possibility of being pregnant....again.

    I would wait 1-2 weeks after having sex before using a test since you can't judge by a missed period.

  • it is possible... Had a baby in Feb. 08 and due Jan. 09. I was quite shocked, it must have been a bedroom opps too. It was not the plan. In may I had two pregnancy test at hospital and one hometest. The hmetest and one hospital was negative. Then a few weeks later I had a positive hospital test.

  • It's possible. If you're breastfeeding your periods may become irregular or even nonexistant, however any pregnancy test you take now would be genuine since the hormone exits your body approximately 3-4 weeks after birth. If a woman is going to have her period a month after her baby is born and it continues to be normal, the chance that the sex she had in the hospital shower would result in a baby is incredibly slim. The Lochea, or afterbirth blood that generally stives off, usually cancels out any ovulation. Take about 2 weeks after of whenever you stopped your post partum bleeding and it's a chance you ovulated then. I would recommend birth control, condoms or BOTH stat.
