  • a good chance since you ovulate before you get your period. get a birth control of some sort if you need to.

  • If you are having unprotected sex, they are quite good.

  • from http://kellymom.com/bf/normal/fertility.html :::

    While it is possible for a nursing mom to become pregnant while she is breastfeeding and before she has her first menstrual period, it is rare. Most moms do not get pregnant until after their first period (often referred to as the "warning period"). Even after that, while some can become pregnant the first cycle, others will require months of cycles before pregnancy can occur. Still others (this is quite uncommon) may not be able to become pregnant until complete weaning has occurred.


    there is also a chart on there that shows what % of women re-start their period when.
