I'm miscarried about a month and a half ago. I have alot of protected sex with my boyfriend and I was wondering when I should get a pregnancy test if my period started on August 1st thru August 4th. this is shortest the shortest menstrual cycle I have ever had and I'm having some concerns because for the last 24 hours I've been having some slight cramping and side pain. how long should I wait to take a pregnancy test. we had unprotected sex four days straight. please help me.

If you had your period, but it was strange and you want to double check you aren't/weren't pregnant already anyway, a test should be accurate now, should have been last week too. Odd cycles after pregnancy are kind of typical though. In fact your cramping could be just from ovulation, though it's a little early for that it can happen. When your next menstruation is due would be when a test would tell you if you just this week conceived.
