  • did your Dr clear you for having sex? That seems so soon. It can happen though, and NO you don't need to have a period. I'm pregnant and never had a period after I had my daughter last year. I'd wait it out because if you tested now it would be pointless, it could pick up hormones from this past pregnancy or come back false even if you were. If you are concerned speak with your OB on what to do.

  • Give your body a break, girl! :-( And you don't need to have a period first to get pregnant. You ovulate before your period. You can get pregnant any time you ovulate....if you are breastfeeding you may not have mature eggs for a few cycles when you ovulate.
