Gynecology

Negative test result

03/20/2008

Question:

I`m breastfeeding my 9 month old son and have had my regular cycle for 6 months now. The last day of my last period was on Feb. 16th. I have taken three test and they have come up negative. Any advise?

Answer:

Since you are breastfeeding, you can expect to have some abnormally spaced cycles. It still seems pretty normal. The negative pregnancy test is reassuring. If you are not planning on getting pregnant now, you should consider some form of contraception.
