  • Very very likely it could happen again, even if you are BF. Look at that 18 kids and counting she BF'ed everyone of her children and they are ALL super close together!

  • Ali, actually, she concieves her kids about 9 months after birth, which anyone who knows anything about using Lactation Amennhorea Method knows it cannot be used after 6 months post partum.

    You are NOT super fertile after birth, and you are almost completely INfertile if you're fully breastfeeding.

  • It's still possible. I've certainly seen it happen, even with exclusive breastfeeding. So. OP, you do have cause for concern.

  • If you're having sex, you can get pregnant. So, it's very possible.

    EBF is NOT effective birthcontrol either.

  • Anon :08, yes it is. 98%. It's just that most women don't exclusively breastfeed. Most use a pacifier or give a bottle of expressed breast milk or formula here and there. If you're giving ZERO suppliments, haven't gotten your period back and baby isn't sleeping through the night and is under 6 months old it's as effective as the pill.
