Silly question...How quickly after giving birth can you become pregnant again?

Like could you become pregnant again before you even start your period again? Could it be less then a month after giving birth and you're already pregnant again?

  • You ovulate before you get your period, therefore you can get pregnant before you have your period. It varies by woman to woman but it is possible for your cycle to return VERY quickly after delivering, some women learn that they're pregnant with a subsequent baby at their 6 weeks postpartum visit.

  • You can get pregnant faster after giving birth or having a miscarriage. Your body is more fertile after those times. A lot of women find out they are pregnant shortly after giving birth because they do not think they can get pregnant right away. It took us 5 years just to get pregnant and I miscarried. Less than a month later I was pregnant again with our daughter.
