Okay, I know "technically" you can get pregnant at any time while breastfeeding, but in this case is it likely? My baby is still exclusively breastfed and refuses solids, but he doesn't always wake up at night to eat. I have not gotten my period back so I don't really know if I'm fertile or not. I'm only asking because hubby had a slip up tonight and I'm trying not to freak out. We usually use condoms but didn't tonight, and he's always been good about pulling out before, but I guess it was too much this time because he wasn't able to. I reeeeaaaally don't want another baby for a few more years lol. I think I know what everyone is going to say, but I thought I'd ask anyway. Tell me there's no way I can get pregnant!Answer Question

It depends on your body, some people don't get pregnant while breastfeeding, but some people do. It is possible, but not always.

Of course anything is possible, but i breastfed too & from what i was told from my Dr. that it is a lot harder to get pregnant while exclusively breastfeeding. Even in nature, some animals who breastfeed cannot get pregnant while they are nursing their young. Not all woman stop their period while breastfeeding, but mne stopped too. I did not have my period for 1 1/2 years. And even when i started to, it was very few & far between. If you are not having your period, then there is a slim chance that there is an egg waiting around in your uterus. But, the thing is....you will never know WHEN your body will begin dropping eggs again. Could be next year, could be next week. So, BE VERY CAREFUL! Don't let this mistake happen again.
