My doctor is going to put a Mirena IUD in and he decided to do a pregnancy test just to make sure. It came up positive and my count is at 1500. He says I am pregnant so he cannot put the IUD in. I am 36 years old and was told I could not get pregnant without help which I have had none and got pregnant for the first time at 35. What is up with my body and could this really be happening just 8 weeks later?

 If you had sex, then yes, it can absolutely be happening again! Looks like you should have waited the recommended amount of time to hold off on that :)

If you can't get pregnant without help, why get birth control?

Awe yay! Woop woop! Congrats! Some women have major problems with their first pregnancy and then their bodies somehow regulate and fix themselves... maybe your one of those ladies? Anywho how did you tell so/dh?

Congratulations, even if it was unexpected. The body is supposedly really fertile right after birth. That's another reason for the wait period after birth.

 If you are exclusively breastfeeding then for the first six months you wont be fertile.

That's not true for all women. Some women will not ovulate while breastfeeding and others will.

 Exactly. A lot of exclusively breastfeeding moms get pregnant well before 6 months.

 not always true, it depends on the woman. I definitely ovulated and my period came back while I was nursing and I exclusively nursed on demand for 10 months,

Not true. I've EBF my last 5. I got pregnant with one baby at 3 months, but lost that one. My others are generally conceived 5-7 months after the last one is born.

Breastfeeding isn't a guaranteed BC. You can ovulate anytime. My period usually returns at 8 weeks postpartum. I'm not one of the 'lucky ones' that don't get their cycle back until they stop nursing.
