I've never heard of the the milk sucking up the hormones so you could test with it. But I'm curious if a pregnant breastfeeding mom (I know there are some here!) would be willing to waste 2 bucks to test both ways with a dollar tree (or cheapo 88 cent walmart tests).

We need our curiosity satisfied as to if this is just an old wives tale.


OP... It's not unusual for your periods to get a little erratic while BFing OR while under stress. If your freaking out you might be pregnant.... that can cause you to be late! I hope you test soon so you'll know and can deal with either. Good luck and I hope it comes out like you want it to.

Pass the I vote you but extra tests and squirt some breast milk on one even if the urine is negative.

And if all else fails...some women have recommended peeing on houseplants just to be sure.

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

Ok, so I took 2 tests....1 urine, 1 breast milk (for fun)......they are both either neg, or a very faint positive or evap line. I got 5 tests (yay dollar store!), so I'll retest in a couple days if AF doesn't show. Just for the sake of the experiment though, the control line on the breast milk one was WAY darker than the control line on the urine one

I'm VERY regular, that's why this threw me for a loop.....and I'm not a day late, I'm like 5 days late. Eh, something will show up eventually one way or another, lol



Oh, and we're fine either way. We weren't trying, and we didn't really want ones this close together, but would have been happy if it happens

Re: *update post 23* Breastfeeding and late period, but neg test? Test with breastmil

Where have you heard the BM theory?? In 11 years of TTC I've never heard of it or BFP's from BM.

I hope your testing brings the results you want. 5 days is pretty late if you're regular, I'd totally think I was pregnant if it were me.

I first ran across it years ago on this website:
http://www.peeonastick.com/hpt/fun.html

But I don't think the website has been updated in a really long time.

What kind of test did you use? Are you sure one of the two control lines was not the test line?

ha! I've actually seen that site! I'm one that used (and got a BFP) an OPK with my last pregnancy. I don't recall looking at the BM section.

We need to see said tests to make sure they are indeed negative lol. Ooo yes I heard about the pee on the cat too lol. Is that popcorn ready yet? Although maybe I should be testing too. I'm still patiently waiting for PPAF, she can take her time Oh and :gasp: we don't use any protection LOL. But we're okay with a #4
