When should I take a pregnancy test if I have an irregular period and I'm spotting?

Difficult timing: Since your period is irregular, it it more difficult to tell early pregnancy if you don't have any symptoms. The hpt usually turns positive after 2 wks following conception. So if you only had relation 1 wk ago and got pregnant from that, it still won't show (too early). If you had relation, say 3 wks ago and got pregnant, likely it is positive now. You can test any time. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I did sexual act Dec 28 I think I'm pregnant and I have an irregular period. If I take a pregnancy test January 24th will I get accurate results?

Yes: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal period, then she is most likely not pregnant. ...Read more

How early can I take a pregnancy test if I have irregular periods?

~2 wks aftr fertiliz: A home pregnancy test will generally be + approx 2 wks after fertilization, or about the time that a period would be expected if cycles are regular.

Ovulation occurs about 14 d before an expected period--so if your cycle varies from 24 to 35 days, ovulation might be as early as cycle day 10 (10+14=24d), or as late as cycle day 21 (21+14 =35d). ...Read more

I am at least 12 days late, but I have irregular periods. My mom says wait until the end of the month, should I take a pregnancy test or should I wait?

I am at least 12 days late, but I have irregular periods. My mom says wait until the end of the month, should I take a pregnancy test or should I wait?

I'm with Mom: If periods are randomly irregular, a woman isn't "late" because she doesn't know when her period is due. Without a period due date, she can't say she is late. However, if her irregularity stays within a narrow range, such as getting periods 4-7 weeks apart, she could say she is "late" if it has been more than 8 weeks since her last period. If worried, test now. Otherwise, Mom's advice sounds fine. ...Read more
