    I'm not 100% but some people have got pregnant really quickly after giving birth, within weeks, so I would definitely start using some form of contraception as soon as you start having sex again :flower:

    u can get preg very quickly after having a baby so use condoms or stay away from oh till u can use the pill or something which u can use 28 days after, have a chat to ur gp and go thru the different forms of contraception to find out what will best suit ur new body

    When they took me back to my room after my c-section, my doctor told me that right after you give birth you are very fertile and can get pregnant immediately. Although, sex is not permitted until at least 4-6 weeks after birth.

    I got pregnant "accidently" straightaway after giving birth to my son Thomas (unfortunately we lost Thomas the day after he was born so not the happiest story)....he was born 27th December 2001 and Lauren was born 3rd October 2002....9 months and a week after her brother:wacko:.


    As soon as you have sex after birth there's always a possibility of pregnancy, you can't be sure when you'll ovulate as you're body and hormones are all over the place:shrug:
