Is it true that you are more fertile the year after having a child?

I have seen this posted several times in other posts, and i have seen the opposite posted, that it's not true.

If anyone knows for sure, why is that? do you know any links?

thanks! and no offense intended to those who have posted it or the opposite, i am just curious about why this is, and i didn't want to hi-jack another question. :)

  • I have never heard this. I have heard your most fertile right after you have a baby. But I've never heard for the full year after.
