I was wanting to have unprotected sex with my husband 8 weeks after childbirth. Two days after starting the pill will I get pregnant?

I have been with my husband for around 3 yrs. We prefer to have unprotected sex. We get tested anually and I know it's safe. It just feels better, but I don't want to get pregnant this soon. Would it be safe? Again, would it?!

  • Yes you could be. Especially that early. My dr told me the first 10 weeks or so I was would be very fertile and needed to use a back-up method to my BC for a month after starting it.

  • Can you afford to take the chance? Think about it, the possibility is very real.

  • you probably should have talked to your doctor at your six weeks check up about that. You are SO fertile after birth that you may have just gotten BINGO again young lady!

  • Yikes!! My husband teases me about having such a high libido BUT no amount of wanting him would have made me risk getting pregnant so soon.. I have friends with "irish" twins (back to back pregnancies) and they survived but I wanted wine and sushi back in my life too much to risk it!!

  • It takes a week for the hormones is Birth control to begin working so there is a chance you could be pregnant, only time will tell.
