    Default How soon can you fall pregnant after giving birth

    How early after having a baby are you able to fall pregnant... Is it even possible if your period has not returned.

    It is possible if your period hasn't come back... as for how long after, not sure on that one...

    I know that you are extremely fertile straight after you have a baby. As to the period part I'm not sure.

    My baby is 13 weeks old now and I think I bled till about 6 weks post partum and towards the end of it it was on and off bleeding. maybe around a few weeks ago I had spoting and I thought it was my period coming back but had no more bleeding after it. I have been sick the past week and a half and am on the tail end of a cold/flu. Last few days though I have been nauseous and for the last 2 weeks moody. I had bad cramps this morning and assumed it was my period coming but nope still nothing. I did bf and ff till about 8 weeks then expressed till about a week and a half ago. The expressing wound down about a month ago aswell. We have been using condoms except one on may 9th we were away for a wedding and well I drunk a bit too much wine and I didin't express that whole 12 hour period leading up to it. The wine and the fact that I hadn't had my period yet made me think I was safe even though my first child was concieved 2 months into using the withdrawel method and I got pregnant the first time we tried with my 2nd. I am thinking to myself I can't possibly be pregnant if I didn't have a period can I? The way I'm feeling must just be illness related is what I was hoping because we don't want anymore children at all.

    My cousin found out she was pregnant 5 weeks after having her baby and then had that baby at 24 weeks. She was only a few days off breaking a record.

    ts, oh sweets
    you ovulate 2 weeks before your period turns up. sooo, you could definatley get pregnant before your period turns up.

    as for when it turns up after birth, that could be anytime.
    some return within 4 weeks, some much much longer.

    maybe you should get the test to be sure hun?

    we're in limbo at the moment, we're still waiting for it to show up, and while we're waiting, we could have gotton preggers in between, iykwim.

    I think you should test. But it sounds like you could be pregnant. I know someone who got pregnant when her first DS was 4wks old. Her DS was only 11mths old when her newborn DD was born. It can happen very quickly.

    I took a test and I'm not pregnant thank god. I could not physically or emotionally handle another pregnancy and child especially this close. I have learnt my lesson and now that I am more educated on the fact you can still fall pregnant without af I definately won't be slipping up.

    Tommo I hope you get a bit of a break between because I really enjoyed being able to relax more when the horrors of reflux were in the past with Ruby.
