  • Well, you missing your pills or being late and breastfeeding could screw your cycle up really bad. It is probably very unlikely. We both know that pull-out method is not that safe So yes, there is always a chance. When in doubt, take a pregnancy test or see a doctor. I know I didn't start my period, an actual period, until my son was 3 months old, and it took awhile for my cycle to regulate.

  • Anything is possible. Especially right after you have a baby, you become more fertile for what ever reason. Wow, you have a 3 month old! ....I know you said that you miss being pregnant but do you really want another baby just yet? I mean i dont know, but again anything is possible maybe you could be pregnant, My question is, are you hoping that the test comes back positive?

  • No i dont want another one im 19 and have too much going for me right now. im not in a stable enough relationship, one is enough she keeps me on my feet. also i want to have some time with just her before i would want to bring another one into the picture. but when you play with fire i guess lol

  • I would suggest asking your physician to order you a blood test to check if you are pregnant, you may test negative on a urine pregnancy test. To be sure- ask him/her for the Beta HCG blood test. If the test is negative you should try to use condoms every time you have intercourse until you stop breast feeding, then you can chose another form of birth control that include the following: IUD, patch, nuva-ring, pills, depo prevera, and I am sure there are more- but you have so many options- if you are forgetful I suggest the intra-uterine device... If you change your mind about having another child you just have your doctor take it out. Good luck.

  • Get tested. You're not using any form of reliable birth control and had sex. It's extremely possible you're pregnant again.

    Having sex = having babies.
