  • YES you can!

    I was nursing my ds, and we were using birth control (condoms, and yes, we used them every time), and I had NOT re-started my period when I got pg with our dd. Our son was 6 mos old at the time, btw.

  • Yep I am currently pregnant with a baby that I had no period for. My last one was June of 07 thats when I got pregnant with my son, he was born March of 08 and is currently breastfeeding. So no period. Its very possible. =)

  • I assume you are not breastfeeding, breatfeeding can stop your period but if you are not and have not had a period in two years I would call your Dr. Something else could be going on, early menapause, hormonal changes, etc...I would have that checked out, the other posters have a reason for no period.

  • Yes you can still get pregnant even if you don't get your period because you still ovulate. I had not been breastfeeding my son and when he was 6 months old I got pregnant with my DD and yes he was using a condom and I was on the pill to get my period started again.

  • Yes, but it is difficult to plan or predict. If you are wanting to try to get pregant, speak to your doctor about starting Provera to bring on menstration, then using a clomid cycle to bring on and predict ovulation.

  • Yep, yep, yep, yep. And maybe your kids will be as close in age as mine : 19, 18, almost 17 and 15.
    And Yep.....ya can get pregnant whilest nursing, on ' the pill', and actually praying NOT to at 'that ' time.
    I wouldn't trade my kids for anything, but when they were all babies.......I passed 'go' and when straight to crazy ! ( Oh ! and on post partum depression meds taboot ). Gotta love our sweet kids, tho ! How many kids do ya have??

  • Yes it's possible. I rarely ever have a period, maybe once every 3-6 months, sometimes longer but I still ovulate every 28 days.
