  • Well, if you're having sex, with or without protection or birth control, and you have all your reproductive organs intact, you can get pregnant, no matter the age of your child.

  • Are you on birth control? Do you use contraceptives in any manner? If so, they are slim. Breastfeeding IS NOT an anti-pregnancy method (you'd be amazed what people think)

  • unprotected sex = 100% possibility of a child being conceived.

  • Yep, you can! My sister-in-law's mother went to her SIX-WEEK CHECKUP after giving birth to her older sister, only to find out that she was pregnant with my sister-in-law, lol.....So be careful!!!

  • Well, if you have sex, if you don't use birth control methods and well, you have sex...yes, you CAN get pregnant with having a 5 month old. My sister was born 12 mos. and 9 days after me and my children are 11 mos, 10 1/2 mos., 10 mos. and 11 1/2 mos. apart in age. No preemies, they were all born at 39-41 weeks.

  • You are actually MOST fertile right after giving birth. My doctor told me he's had to tell women they were pregnant again at their 6-week postpartum checkups! It doesn't matter if you had a baby 5 months ago or 5 years ago. If you have unprotected sex you can get pregnant.
