how soon can u get pregnant after having a baby?

I know your suppose to wait 6 weeks after you have a baby to have sex but I had a c-section and feel great so well my husband and I did it. However we didn't use any protection. I had my son a month ago, we want another baby just not yet. So how long after having a baby can you get pregnant again?

  • My friend was pregnant again when she went back for her 6 wk check up after having her baby! If you dont want one NOW then use protection because it can & does happen all the time. My brother & sister are so close in age they are the same age for 2 months.

  • There are babies born just over 9 months apart. Assume you are fertile now.
