how long should I wait until taking a test

Well I have 2 kids already and unfortunately last year I had a abortion, that caused me to be depressed, I also worried that I won't be able to have a another baby.. because my period was all wacky from the abortion even though the Doctor said ovarian were fine. I'm 31 and I have been dating for a little over a year, and my period is now more on a 32day cycle but that means I'm about 4days late is it possible, or how long should I wait until taking a test

Sevv, I'm sorry about the depression. If it is any comfort about one third of all women find it necessary to terminate a pregnancy at some time during their reproductive years.

You aren't reporting any of the other early signs of pregnancy. A home test next weekend using first morning pee would have a good chance of telling true.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. You can still get pregnant after abortion, cycle may vary from 21 to 35 days. So wait a few days and get morning urine tested after 35 days. and keep testign every morning till you get your periods.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
