  • You could mos definetly get pregnant.. and I suppose if it's been long enough your Dr. could tell you. Thats how my sister in law got pregnant with # 3 right after #2

  • YES you can get pregnant even with the pull out method and your dr can do a blood test if he thinks it's necessary.congrats on your newborn!

  • That's how I got pregnant now! This is my third kid and I just had a baby. She's almost 5 months old, but it was only a matter of time and we were using protection! ugh...

  • Yep. You don't have to have had a period to get pregnant (since periods come AFTER ovulation...if they come).

  • The pullout method is the "how to get pregnant quickly" method. **smile** Yes, you CAN get pregnant again. Especially if you're not breastfeeding, which suppresses ovulation.

  • The pullout method IS NOT RELIABLE...so yes you can get pregnant. No, your doctor would not be able to tell if you were pregnant again or not. It takes 6 weeks for HCG levels to fall.
