I have just finished my period 6 weeks after giving birth could I get pregnant? adult content

I'm not on any birth control after having a baby 6 weeks ago i finished my postpartum bleeding and had a period I've had sex a lot without protection as I don't like using condoms I was just curious if I could get pregnant so quickly? I wouldn't mind if I was but just wanted others views on the whole fertility thing

  • Yes you can. The reason you are not supposed to have sex for six weeks after giving birth, is because of the open wound on the uterine wall from where the placenta came off. Sex can introduce bacteria into that area and give you a massive infection. So now you know. Ideally you should wait a year to start trying again to allow your body to heal completely.

  • Of course you can. It wouldn't be great for your body though.

  • Yes. Not great for your body but you can get pregnant. There are tons of different types of BC out there.

  • I have never, ever heard of a doctor or midwife not cautioning against sex for six weeks after delivery of a child. So, I would suggest that you may wish to educate yourself on this.


    Here's one


    Here's one from the Mayo

  • If you had to ask this question, then no, sweetheart, you do NOT have a brilliant education.
    But thanks for entertaining us this evening.
