  • yeah you do not have to get a period to get pregnant since you ovulate BEFORE you bleed. you can be pregnant if you had sex.

  • I guess that depends....if you're not using b/c or protected sex, then yes...it's possible. But after giving birth, it can take many months for your body to regulate and get back to "normal". I've heard some women can have a span of 9 mths of not getting a period after giving birth (and no, they weren't breastfeeding).

    It took my body 3 months with my first one and 1 month with my 2nd child. So it just varies. When in doubt, take a HPT or call your doc....but seeing how you recently had a baby, I would think your body is getting back to normal. HTH!

  • if you are nursing, it could take a lot longer. there is always the possibility of being pregnant if you are having sex though.

  • If you're nursing, it usually takes longer for you to get your period.

    If you had sex (with or without birth control) it's possible to be pregnant. You ovulate before you bleed.

    I have two kids conceived on two different types of correctly used birth control.
