  • How can you even have sex a week after birth? You are probably more likely to get an infection than pregnant, but you would be able to test about 3 weeks after intercourse and get an accurate answer would be my guess.

  • Yes it is but you are most likely to miscarry cause your body isn;t ready My brother and his wife got pregnant when the baby was 2 weeks onld i think and she miscarried 3 weeks into it

  • Dates are important.......When did you have baby and has your cycle came on as of today......If it's been more than 3 months you may need to go to doctor. But haven't you been for your checkup after the baby was born? My granny used to say it's easier to get pregnant afer having one....

  • Yes you can get pregnant right after having a baby. My friend had her baby and lost it at 26 weeks. She was pregnant 2 weeks later and her son is a very healthy and active almost 5 yr old. You do need to wait a few weeks to test (expecailly if you do a home test) the hormones from the first pregnancy can stay in your body for up to 6 weeks. If after 6 weeks you think you are pregnant go to the clinic and have the dr check your levels, that is the best way to know for sure if you are or aren't.
