  • Yes, it is possible. I've seen people who've gotten pregnant as soon as they had their C-section.
    You are the most fertile you've ever been right after the birth of a child, because... you've essentially "stored" those eggs for 9 months when you were not having a period due to pregnancy.

  • I haven't gotten pregnant immediately after giving birth, but I got pregnant with my 1st, 3 weeks after a miscarriage

  • My SIL got pregnant with her youngest when her son was 4 weeks old.

  • Well the condom would have to leak and you would have to have started ovulating again already. Not terribly likely, but possible. I'd get on birth control, though. Even if you're breastfeeding (my period returned 6 weeks pp with both of my kids and I was exclusively breastfeeding). If you're nursing you can get an IUD or a progestrone pill, if you're not you can be on a regular combination pill.
