Absolutely possible. Firstly, your hormones have changed and are still settling. Secondly, if you are breastfeeding, your cycle could be irregular or stopped altogether. But even if you aren't, it can take quite some time for your body to get back to normal. This is the reason WHY it is so important to take additional precautions if you don't want to end up with another pregnancy at this point.

He can NEVER be 100% sure about it. Withdrawal method is hardly birth control and is frequently reported to have an 18% failure rate. So yes, you could be pregnant. if you don't want to be pregnant you need to find a more reliable birth control method or abstain from sex altogether.

Having said that, it could also just be that your period is irregular.

Do a test.
