dd is seven and a half months old. she is still nursing almost every two to three hours (she is not into solids at all) and we co-sleep. still no PP menstruation but from the age of six weeks to ten weeks, i was away from her a few evenings a week. as a result, i was not relying on breastfeeding as birth control and until recently had been using condoms exclusively.

so... in case it isn't obvious, we didn't a few times and now we are both : .

when can you test? was my libido so high because i was ovulating?

How long ago did you have unprotected sex? Anyway, if you think you might be you could go ahead and test now and if it is negative wait a few weeks and then test again.

Oh, then I guess it would be too early to test. It's the waiting game.........
Let's us know what happens!

The best time to test, if you don't know when you ovulated, is approximately two weeks after your last unprotected sex. If you ovulated on the last day you had sex, that would be possibly the earliest you could get a + test.

I know it is a long wait, but that way you will know for sure. Good luck!
