I just had a baby May 27,2011. I had unprotected sex about 9 days after my baby was born. Could I be pregnant? Are there any early signs? Please Help

My husband pressured me into having sex so early after childbirth. I was foolish for allowing him to and Im regretting it now.

  • probably not, but why would you do that it can hurt you whether you know it or not!

  • you are most fertile right after you have a baby. i would assume the signs are the same as with any pregnancy.

  • Only thing you can do is wait and take a test. I am assuming that its pretty unlikely to get pregnant so soon after giving birth because you have not begun ovulating yet...but you never know! Good luck!!

  • Maybe I'm stupid but I thought you are supposed to wait at least 4 weeks before having sex after having a baby.. Risk of infection or something like that..

    Of and to answer your question, yes you can get pregnant very quickly after having a baby..

  • How soon after can I take a pregnancy test?

  • actually its easiest to get pregnant righ after having a baby due to everything become a cleared out to such an extent. hopefully your not simply because it is soo hard on our bodies to get pregnant right after having a baby. our bodies need time for our uterus to shrink back down and the blood we lose to be built back up. i would suggest being more careful next time if your not and until you find out if you are. but ultimatley it is your desicion.

  • do you know you are still wide open. you can cause damage and infection, everything is swirling around in there. now you go get yourself a panty girdle and put it on for support. OMG

  • I knew a girl who got pregnant one week after having her baby so it could totally happen.

  • My biggest concern here is that you allowed your DH to pressure you into having sex. Don't ever let a man do that. You put yourself at risk of infection, which could lead to PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease), which in turn could lead to infertility and even a hysterectomy. No man should EVER pressure a woman into have sex. You are a woman, not his sex slave or whore.

  • You can take a test 2 weeks after the day you had sex - that's about the soonest you'd be able to get a positive. I personally would keep testing every week after that for a few weeks - cheap tests! There's a very good chance you could have gotten pregnant already. If you get negatives a few weeks in a row, and keep your hubby from you in that way, talk to your doc about b/c, or use condoms.
