Ok first, pls no rude remarks..I had a baby 7weeks ago. Me and my husband resumed sex again at 26days after my childbirth and he ejaculated inside once only. At the time we had sex the bleeding didn't stop. until now its been 7weeks there still coming out from me (light green first then reddish brown and it really has a bad odor)..iam breastfeeding until now, my question is how probable is pregnancy from having sex 3 weeks after my chldbirth? i know your fertile after having a baby but u cant ovulate as early as 3 weeks pp right? and can u get pregnant while u still have the postpartum bleed? again, pls no rude comments, just friendly answers only.thanks!



p.s we are not trying for another baby

I know you are asking Bobbie, but... Decide what? None of us are your doctor and none of us can diagnose you over the internet. You either are or you aren't pregnant. It IS possible, but either way you need to be seen asap and I'm glad you are going in tomorrow.

Yes darling you can get pregnant that early. The green foul smelling discharge sounds like some sort of infection. I was told if you have sex too soon after delivery, bacteria can be introduced causing a subsequent infection. See your OB immediately or go to the hospital where you delivered.

I would really have that discharge checked out. That does not sound normal at all!

You very much can get pregnant that early... that's why some siblings are 10 months apart. :) Whether or not you actually ARE though... I have no idea.



With that discharge you really need to see a doctor asap.

i ovulated 2 weeks after having my baby and started my period 2 weeks after that. i was surprised it came on so quickly. ive always had the thought that getting pregnant is a 50/50 chance at any time whether you use birth control of any kind or not. if a man ejaculates in you then assume you are pregnant until you are proven to not be. with the discharge i would definitely call your doctor about it, it could be an std or your uterus could be infected from birthing.



take care of yourself, your baby needs you :)

I had sex 2 weeks after giving birth. I don't think having sex can cause the odor and discharge you are talking about unless he has transmitted something to you. I would seriously make a gyn appointment asap. The most common cause of green vaginal discharge is a sexually transmitted infection known as trichinosis. The discharge often has a foul odor. A foul-smelling, colored discharge can also occur when a foreign body, such as a retained tampon, is in the vagina.

Trichomoniasis can easily be diagnosed by sampling the discharge. Since it is transmitted sexually, tests for other infections, including gonorrhea and bacterial vaginosis, may be performed at the same time. Trichomoniasis, gonorrhea, and bacterial vaginosis are curable with appropriate antibiotic therapy. If a foreign body is present, it will need to be removed and antibiotics may be used to treat any potential infection.

As far as getting pregnant from that sex at 26 days pp I say you are safe. I wouldn't continue to have sex until you see the doctor. A green and reddish brown discharge at 7 weeks that has a bad odor means something is not right. It could mean that something was left behind that should have been expelled after giving birth.
