Is it save to not get pregnant without taking birth control pills. Some believe there will not get pregnant until they start having there period, I don't want to get pregnant too soon. My son is 7 months and he is going to be 8 in few days.

I need your opinions on that
Thank you

you're welcome. You can also become pregnant if you're nursing when the baby is weaning off the breast. If you're not breastfeeding every few hours, there's a chance you can ovulate. That's why some people are surprised to find out they are pregnant while breastfeeding or before they get their first period. Better to use protection if concerned. :)

Hi,

You can get pregnant before your first period, because you ovulate before your period. It's when you ovulate that you are most fertile, which is roughly 2 weeks before your period. So you can definitely get pregnant before you have your return of your period.
