Test in about 1-2 weeks. if the test in a week comes up negative, wait another week and test again. ALSO~ in the meantime use some form of BC like condoms reliably if you don't want to take your BC pills until your sure your not pregnant again.

I'd test in a few days or get a blood test. I had my son almost a year ago and stopped pumping at eight months as my supply dried up and i am not taking birth control, and i have yet to get an actual period. I've had spotting but nothing i've needed a pon or pad for. Every one is different so it's hard to say. If your that concerned i would see your Dr.
