Question Breastfeeding and late period, but neg test? Test with breastmilk?

Ok, so my LO is 5 months and EBF. I got AF back when he was less than 2 months and it's been very regular since. We had a couple condom malfunctions this month, one during ovulation. I am about 5 days late, but my test a few days ago was a BFN, but it was very weird....the second control line was very dark, but the first one (horizontal, so negative) was very light, so I'm not sure if something was wrong with the test......


Anyway, I've heard things about your BM basically "sucking up" all your extra hcg, which is why it doesn't turn up in your urine when you POAS. I've heard of people getting their BFP when taking a test with breastmilk.....

What do you guys think? About both parts, lol.....

I've never heard of testing with breastmilk but I guess you could give it a shot! Might be wasting a test though lol. It could be possible that your period is just late for some reason or else you may be pregnant and it is just not showing on the test yet, due to a late implantation or something. I'd keep testing over the next few days and if there's still no AF or BFP try and get a blood test so you know for sure.

If you do a breastmilk test I'd be curious to hear the results! Good luck

Did you try it? We need some of the November mamas to try it while they are still in test mode.

Hmmm, I've never heard of this but it makes sense for me. I conceived this pregnancy while breastfeeding and i was convinced something was off because it took forever to get a BFP. I have some cheapie tests leftover, I will have to try it.

ETA - It worked! A very dark BFP at 7.5 weeks pregnant. Now if one would get a BFP from breastmilk before they would get one with urine, that I can't help with but I sure would like to know.

I am going through a MC. My urine tests are negative already and I am waiting for my last beta results. My BM was positive using the same ICs this afternoon. It took a very long time for the field to clear out though.
