When to test with irregular periods.


Hello Everyone.

My OH and I decided for one night to NTNP. This is our first time NTNP, I don't have regular periods and never have, how long would I have to wait before doing a pregnancy test, as I don't know when to expect my period?

You can test 10-14 days after ovulation but if you don't know when you've ovulated, it would be pretty hard to give you an exact day of when to test. Were you experiencing fertile CM on the night you had unprotected sex? Was it watery or egg-whitey? I guess you could assume that sperm will survive in your vagina for up to four days and you could test 14 days after that so wait 18 days since unprotected sex to test?

Your profile signature on the left says you're already pregnant though??

Sorry didn't realise i had done that, changed it now.

It's been 10 days since unprotected sex. To be honest i wouldn't be able to say, i think trying to remember it may have been a little watery.

If it were me, I'd wait another 4-8 days to test then.

I have irregular periods and never know when to test. I'm wasting far too many tests.

I'm not allowing myself to test until the 21st! I will be on day 34. I would wait until day 40 as my last 2 cycles have been 39 days, but I want to have a couple of pimms on my girly lunch. Only if I'm not pg of course. Xx

When i was younger i never thought of keeping a record of my cycles, i just didnt think. I wish i had now, as i totally have no idea. I can go 2-3 months without a period and sometimes i have had 2 in one month. In the past I liked it that way, didn't have to deal with times of the month as often as others but when it comes to baby making it is rather annoying. My last one was over a month ago, if not over 6 weeks ago. I will try and wait with you then, it's very hard though.

I know what you mean, I used to love having 3 day light periods once every 2 months. But it is really frustrating now. I guess in some ways I'm less stressed about doing it at a particular time as I have no idea when that time is.

I find it so hard not to test early but I'm being strict with myself this month! Lol

Good luck. Xx

Before I started temping my rule was I would test if I hadn't seen AF for 8 weeks, and then ever 4 weeks after that. Thankfully since we've been ttc my longest cycle was only about 11 weeks, but before I went on birth control my longest had been like 6 months (and was then brought on by meds), 2nd longest 17 weeks!!! I wasn't having sex then though so I knew I wasn't pg
