I'd say take the test about 30 days after you last period. If it is negative, wait a week and take another one if you haven't gotten your period. If it is still negative, wait another week and take a third if you don't start. If you still have not started or gotten a positive result go see a doctor. It's hard to say since your periods are so irregular, but taking a test about a month after your last period should be enough time to get a positive result if you are pregnant.

Answeri am in the same situation, last month it was 43 days but a few months earlier it was 29 days!! its soo annoying. at the moment its been 39 days and i am worried i am pregnant, i have done 4 tests all over the past 9 days-all negative. i am sacred i have taken them to early! i read the home preg test leflet and it says for irregular periods take the longest cycle you have had and test from then. for me that is 3 days away, wish me luk.

ope i have helped in sum way

Yes. Because of irregular periods it may be harder to date a pregnancy. Cysts are very common and do not always prevent pregnancies from occurring.

Yes. Some women have very irregular periods. If you suspect you are pregnant, you should take a home pregnancy test just to be sure.

There is a slim chance that you could be, however, you should see your gynecologist if you are uncertain. Home pregnancy tests are sometimes not accurate.

Irregular periods are very common for women under 20. As you get older it should balance out. People say birth control helps..But i'm not positive.

You should visit your gynocologist since irregular periods/ovulation can be very difficult to track.

Periods can be and often are very irregular in young girls up to 3 years after their first period. After these 3 years, if periods are still extremely irregular, a girl should see her doctor.

Especially in your first year of having periods, they can be very irregular. If you are sexually active, get a pregnancy test as you might be pregnant. And always if you're unsure, please see your nurse or doctor

I wouldnt say irreuglar periods are a sign of pregnancy its usually actually missing a period for about 2 , 3 or even 4 times(months) in a row. Irregualr periods mean that your body is just developing differently. I reccomend Yaz birth control pills , they regualate ur periods very well.

User Avatar

Yes. Yes, it is very possible....I suggest you do a pregnancy test or contact your doctor, especially if you had regular periods before the pregnancy.

Hello. This could be due to pregnancy, irregular periods, birth control pills or a hormonal imbalance.

User Avatar

It could be pregnancy related but it is very difficult to answer unless you see your doctor for a blood test. The blood test will confirm or rule out pregnancy. If your on birth control or have recently stopping taking birth control, this can cause the very light period and so can a hormonal inbalance and irregular periods.

To know the difference, you should take a pregnancy test. If you haven't had sex for a while but are skipping periods, and you are over 35, it very well could be perimenopause or full-blown menopause. If you are sexually active, you should take a pregnancy test. It might also be early stages of menopause, but if you are still having ANY periods, there is still the chance of pregnancy.

Unless you usually have irregular periods, it's very likely that you're pregnant.

User Avatar

Maybe, but likely no. If you are young and just starting puberty abnormal periods are common. It usually takes 6 months to a year before the body settles down into a regular cycle. If you are older it could be menopause. With onset of menopause the periods become very irregular and are not normal.

User Avatar

yes, its very common. 50% of women have irregular periods.

User Avatar

You might be pregnant after you missed your period, but it does not mean that you are. Periods are very irregular. As much as we would like them to be regular, they are not. If it has been more than about 5 days, take a pregnancy test to be sure.

Very extrenous excersice or training could be a factor along with drug side effects. Wheter or not this might be the case, medical advise should be seeked when sudden late periods occur.

When you begin having periods, your body is getting used to it just like how you learned to ride a bike. You may experience irregular periods for the first year or so because your body is just getting used to it all (like how you were wobbly for the first bit of learning to ride a bike). Don't worry-things should straighten out! If you feel that something is very wrong, you should visit either your family doctor or gynecologist. When you get on track your periods should be from 3-7 days. If you are lucky you could get 3.

If you did not use protection, then you might have become pregnant. Even with irregular periods, the chances of getting pregnant are there! Wait a week or so and get a pregnancy test, since your period may not be the telling sign.

User Avatar

This is usually caused by irregular periods or a hormonal imbalance.

User Avatar

Yes, but it varies based on your personal cycle.

User Avatar

This sounds like very irregular periods. The first thing I would do is take a pregnancy test to rule that out. Then if your test is negative or positive either way you need to contact your gynecologist either to figure out why your periods are so irregular or to start the planning for your baby.

User Avatar

Hiya! Yes that could be a sign of pregnancy. Wait two weeks and do a pregnancy test.

User Avatar

Yes People can have there period all the way through there pregnancy but it's very unusual but it happens there may be spotting that may come as it please but you should have a doctor check that out

User Avatar

Yeah, periods vary in length for everyone. If you haven't had your period very long then its normal to be irregular. By the time you are 16, your period should be normal. If not, see a doctor. They can prescribe you birth contol which will regulate your period.
