Here's the thing. Sex is how you get pregnant. So if you had sex, of course you could be pregnant. ANY time you have sex you can get pregnant. Even just after you have had a baby.

I honestly wonder about the sex education some people get.

Seriously? She went and deleted her posts?

It was just someone who didn't like the fact that I answered the way I did and proceeded to give me a rundown on how the woman could be breastfeeding and blah, blah, blah. Stuff I already knew. I still stand by the fact that ANY time you have sex you could get pregnant because you can't know when you start ovulating after having a baby.

To the OP, if you are in doubt, wait a couple of weeks and do a test, but next time, if you are not wanting to get pregnant again yet, make sure you use some form of birth control.

Oh, Sere, I totally agree. I was just wondering why you so strongly felt the need to come back in and address me directly when I made my initial comment, which was not in response to you at all, but merely in response to the OP. I am quite aware this is an international site - I have been here for 5 years. Your clear need to try and lecture and educate me is totally unnecessary. But thank you for your concern ;)

The fact is, she had sex, she could be pregnant. End of story. If she wants to ask something more or share more info, then that burden is on her.

Sere, you haven't been around here very long. Believe me, you would be surprised the number of women who actually ask because they think they can't get pregnant until after they have their first period, so they have unprotected sex.

I am NOT the one who needs sex ed, but thank you for the run down. I am fully aware of all the facts. It might help the OP. And yes, so might my post. Some people just need to know that even after just having a baby, they can get pregnant, even if they are breastfeeding, even if they haven't had their period, even if he pulled out......

Ah... yeah, I was exclusively breastfeeding and my cycle came back at 2.5 months pp... I definitely could have gotten pregnant again if I was having sex. ;)
