With irregular periods you should test according to your longest cycle in recent months. If you are uncertain when your period is due or could be due, it is recommended to test at least 19 days from the day you think you became pregnant. If the result is negative you should test again in 3 days because you may have tested too early. Good luck.

You had your period for half a day and then it stopped Why?

There are a few reasons as to why you had your period for half a day and then it stopped. If your periods are just starting, it is normal for them to be irregular for a while. If you have irregular periods or are on hormonal birth control, this can also affect your periods. Lastly, if pregnancy could be possible, you should take a pregnancy test to rule that out as soon as possible.
