  • yep you are very fertile after you have a baby, its a 50/50 chance here. I would just get a test to check. But I feel like you are pregnant. let me know. You shouldve been a tad bit more careful, lol. Good luck.

  • I didn't have a period for almost 9 months after by child was born. If you're that worried, then maybe you should go by a pregnancy test, or go see your Obgyn.

  • Okay you are only more fertile right after delivery if you ARE NOT nursing. Since you are nursing AND on birth control I would bet it is only the period not returning because of nursing. Mine did not come back until my kids were about 14 months old both times and we used no birth control and didn't get pregnant until 2-3 cycles after it returned. I would however recommend taking a test if you are that worried about it.

  • i was only BF for 2 weeks and my son is now 4 months old. I have had one period 2 months ago but im not pregnant again. It takes a while for your hormones to get on track and get a regular cycle again. But if it worries you then you can go in and get a blood test to be on the safe side.
