Well, you can still get pregnant, it just less likley. And probably has more to do with the BC then the BFing if you are already 6 months pp. by the way, the only time that BF works is if you only BF and never skip a feeding and haven't had a period yet. And my doctor said that it is usually only for maybe 2 months after baby and even then it is still extremly common to get knocked up because of your hormones. So don't depend on that as a back up, not that you are, just giving you some info on it. You would be shocked at the women who are like 10 month pp and surprised when they get pregnant because the Internet said they couldn't if they were BFing.

Do you get a period?

I know you still can while bfing I just heard that sometimes you wont ovulate, and I do have an alarm on my phone, this is my first time messing up on it





Quoting LilliesValley:

This can happen any time you don't take it at the same time. It doesn't happen to everyone but it can happen. Breastfeeding (for the billionth time) does not prevent pregnancy. The chances are you aren't pregnant but really try hard to take your pill at the same time every day. Maybe even pay out of pocket to keep a spare pack in your purse. Set a reminder on your phone etc.

I actually thought I had a stomach bug, I went to the doctor and they took blood. He told me I was pregnant 10 minutes later.

Quoting babydsmommy18:

Yes you can. My "I only took the pill a little late once and I was breastfeeding" mistake is now 3 years old.
