Is there a good chance you can get pregnant after having a baby if you havent got ur period yet

It's been 4 and a half weeks since i gave birth i had unprotected sex last night with my fiance i let him you know inside me. but i havent gotten a period yet so does this mean i could still get pregnant or no?

  • You sure can get pregnant. After birth, no period does not mean no ovulation - you still ovulate which means you can get pregnant. Wait a few weeks and take a test. Also - are you breastfeeding? It's actually normal to bleed for up to 6 weeks - so it doesn't surprise me that you're 4.5 weeks post-partum and no period yet. Again, wait a few weeks and test.

  • You can ovulate before your first period comes back. I did after my first child. It isn't common, but it is possible.

  • I thought u bleed right after giving birth for 6 weeks. U should ask your doctor about that. It is not right that u never got it yet.
