That would be the first missed period. Some women have spotting that can be mistaken as a period ... If your period is lighter or shorter than a normal period, you should take a pregnancy test. Tests are accurate the first day of a missed period or 10-14 days after a missed period.

Are you wanting to prevent pregnancy? Have you thought about options for birth control (condoms, the pill, diaphragm ...)?

Nursing is a work of heart!
