How soon after implantation bleeding can I take a home pregnancy test?

I have had many signs of pregnancy like, swollen and tender boobs, stomach cramps on the left side, constant diziness and a few light headaches. My last period started on May 13th and I started on June 12th with a very light period. I typically have very heavy periods and this time it is light. I have read all about Implantation bleeding and not sure if that is what I am going thru.  I have heard many things and not sure which to believe. I have heard to wait 2 weeks after i stop bleeding to take a test, some say ok to test while bleeding and others say to wait a few days after I stop. Im not really trying to get pregnant but I would be happy if I was. Anyone have any advice? My periods have never been regular but my husband and I are stressed wondering if i am pregnant. Im thinking it wont hurt to test now while bleeding, in a few days after i stop and then maybe again in a few weeks. Thank you for all your help.

Waiting is so hard. I know I couldn't wait. I'd be testing every other day till I knew for sure. Good luck. I don't remember the exact time frame as everyone is different and their lvls rise differently... You could try now and see what you get. If it's negative test again in a few days. Do you have 28day cycles or what?

If your periods aren't regular it's hard to say if u are even ovulating right. I'd definitely take a test though.

So I took a test this morning and it was negative. Maybe I just had a light period. I will maybe test again in a few days.

My periods are never on the same cycle. As a teenager I started BC because they were so irregular and I would most likely be in bed in pain for a day during the cycle. They have calm down a ton since then, but they are definately more heavy then what this month has been like. I think I will take one in the morning and then in a few days. I have been bleeding now for about 5 days and I have read implantation bleeding can be 6-14 days long. I just moved and dont have a doctor yet but I might start to research one. Any other suggestions? Open to any :)

I've always been regular my cycles are every 28 days. I always start my period on the last week of the month. Last month May 28th(monday) i started my period and finished on June 2 (saturday) on the next day my husband and i had sex and he didn't withdrawl. I'm not on any BCP's. On friday the 15th two weeks early i got my period, i had cramps, sore nipples, a few breakouts. The bleeding was brownish and quite quickly became very light. So now it's going on four days but there isn't enough blood coming out to use a pad or tampon. It's only after wiping after using the bathroom is when i see the blood. Could this be implantation bleeding? I took a pregnancy test and just a regular store brand and it came out negative. I guess my question is how long should i wait to test?
