Pregnant after just giving birth?

I gave birth to our third daughter on July 31st. We had sex 3 weeks later. The bleeding had stopped. About a week later I bled for 1 1/2 days and then it stopped. Could I be pregnant? I am breastfeeding also.

  • If you are breast feeding its highly unlikely. Your body has a natural sort of BC when you are nursing for the first couple months. If you are really worried about it, the best thing to do is go to your dr and get a test done.

  • Breastfeeding is not a form of birth control at any time. Many breast feeding moms get pregnant weeks after they deliver. Best call your OB to test and be sure.

  • BFing doesn't count. I read about it and often times it will say that moms rarely ovulate, etc., but SO many women do (and without realizing it), like me, that I know better, lol!

  • Any time you have sex, you can get pregnant. If you're concerned, test.
