How Soon Should I Test

My last period started February 25. Normally, I have 26 day cycles, but the BCP messed me up completely. I went off the BCP (not because I'm trying to conceive, because I was on the wrong dosage) in December and my cycles haven't been regular since. On March 23, I had some light bleeding when I wiped, which sounds like it could be implantation bleeding. How soon should I test? Thanks in advance.

do you have any symptoms yet? or is it just the bleeding? i think that you should take a test now.. if you still haven't had your regular period, and even if it's negative, you should test again about a week after the first test. Usually you can buy the HPT's and they come with a bonus test. Try getting one with a bonus one or two extra tests, just to be sure. Hope this helps!

Thanks. I'm really bloated (which could also be a sign of my period) and I'm a bit tired, but not any more than usual (I'm a college student... it sort of comes with the territory.) I just tested and it was negative, but I'll test again if I haven't gotten my period in a few days. Thanks again for your help.

Are you still bleeding now?

No. It wasn't very much at all. (TMI maybe, the size of a nickel?) And it only happened the one time.
