Posted by   + Show Post
Ok,, so I'm exclusively breastfeeding my 5 1/2 month old and I haven't got my cycle yet, but I've been cramping from time to time like it wants to start, so can you get pregnant without having a cycle??

Hell yes!!! I'm about to give birth to my "Irish Twin" (I have a daughter that just turned one.) You drop your egg way before you get your period...and since you never know when this will happen, better safe than sorry!

It is very uncommon to get pregnant before 6 months w/o first having a cycle, but it is not impossible. In the first 6-12 months it is common for mom to have a cycle w/o ovulating, often called a "warning menses". The older the baby, the more common that you will ovulate w/o warning.

Yes.  One of my three was conceived before I could have a full normal cycle.

I did! I didn't have my cycle return and I got pregnant when my DD was 7 months old. I also got pregnant the first time with no cycle either. I only had a period once a year before kids, but I still managed to get pregnant! It can happen!
