Sex after birth

Bec - posted on 11/07/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




I gave birth 6 weeks ago and 5 days ago we had sex using the pull out method. I went to my 6 week check up and got a script for the pill. The doc said if you have had sex you should take a hpt to make sure your not pregnant before starting the pill. I'm not sure when I should take the test as I only had sex 5 days ago and the hcg hormone probably won't show up yet. As my period hasn't returned yet I'm not sure when it would be due to know if it's a missed period. Any thoughts???

The pull out method isn't reliable and you are more fertile after giving birth. I would wait a week and take a test. Until you have been on the pill for a month or 2 use condoms.
