Thanks Jodi n Cecilia for ur helpful advice!
N yeah Cecilia ur right.. it was 10-15 days (not weeks..sorry for the confusion.)
I will take the test once again in a week, n preferably a blood test to rule out any ambiguity..what say friends?

maybe it's just me but the math isn't making much sense here. I'll give the october babies October 1st just as a reference point. So then you bleed until nov 12th. then you got your first period in 4 weeks., so dec 10th. Then you and hubby had sex 10 weeks after your period, so Feb 18th.. See why it isn't making sense? you had sex on a day that hasn't happened!

Did you mean 10-15 days post period?? that is the only way this even makes any sense here. If so, then yes it is possible. Most women ovulate around 11 days post period. With that said, you are breast feeding so that does lower your chances. With a negative test, then you probably aren't. If you're unsure retest in a week. a home test will work just fine.

You had unprotected sex, yes, you could still be pregnant. But you could also just have irregular periods because you are still breastfeeding. I would suggest that you test again in a week or so, and in the meantime, don't have unprotected sex if you don't want to be pregnant again (which at this early stage would not be a good idea). If the next test is still negative, and you still have not had your period, see your doctor for a blood test.
