I thought I was the only one. It took 9 months for mine to come back. Everyone thought I was dying when it did return.

Personal experience my 2nd and 3rd child are only 11 months apart and I never got my period after having my second child so when I went back for my checkup I was already pregnant and found out because I was waiting for my period so I could start my birth control. So to answer your question yes you can get pregnant before having your period.

You absolutely CAN get pregnant before the return of a period after childbirth. This is not my opinion, it is a fact. You can also get pregnant while breastfeeding. If you are having sex, and still have a uterus and ovaries, you can get pregnant.

You can get pregnant after you just have a baby. My midwife told me to be care after having a baby. But you might what to check with your doctor or your midwife. They can answer that question for you correctly.

i know a girl who went to her 6 week check up and found out she was pregnant. i actually started my pill before i got my first period and it put me right back on schedule, so you dont need to wait until you get it.

nope you can... thats why the doctors tell you not to have any unprotected intercourse... your more likely to get pregnant right after having a baby

NO, you can get pregnant! You dont have to be on your period to produce an egg. If you have any questions you can just call your drs. office and speak w/ a nurse!

YES you can get pregnant again right away a very close friend of mine had her baby on sept 25th 2008 and when she went back for her 6 week check-up she was 5 weeks pregnant again. unless you want to have children really close together you will protect yourself with birth control.

Yep, definately! My breastmilk dried up overnight when my son was about 2 months old and I got severe tonislitis and could barely drink (not that breast feeding is 100% birth control). As a result of that and the obvious other necessities, I had a daughter 360 days after I gave birth to my son. All before I had a real period.

Actually, you are the MOST fertile right after you've given birth! I guess it's one of those ancient survival things or something. And don't worry about not having your periods come back yet. I didn't get mine back for almost a year!

You can ... my sister has babies 10 months apart. Meaning she got pregnant 4 weeks after giving birth.

This is coming from someone who had it happen to them. I was breastfeeding and 6 weeks after having my first child I got pregnant again. Unfortunately, due to my body not having enough time to heal from the first pregnancy and stablize, I lost the baby. Most doctors also recommend that you wait at least a year before trying to conceive again because it increases your chances of miscarriage and preterm labor.

Ovulation comes before a period (i.e., you produce the egg, if the egg is not fertilised and therefore does not implant, your body purges the lining on the wall of your uterus, therefore producing your period). So you could ovulate at any time, and you wouldn't necessarily know when. So in answer to your question, you could ABSOLUTELY get pregnant.

Nope, definitely not correct. You can get pregnant anytime after giving birth, even before you have a regular period. I know of at least two of my friends that went in at their 6 week checkup only to find out they were pregnant. If you don't want to get pregnant again you really want to be using some birth control at this point.

I'm sure it's not impossible, so be careful if you don't want to have two babies a year apart! I got pregnant after one period by the time my daughter was 2 months old - that's an 11 month gap!

Hi Tasseua,

It has been a long time for me and pregnancy, but I do believe you could get pregnant before you resume your periods. I have never heard that you have to have a period first in order to produce eggs, as your period is the shedding of the lining the uterus forms to welcome a fertilized egg. I believe that an egg is produced first, then if no fertilization occurs, you get your period.

Good luck

Renee

Nope. Not correct. You can ovulate before having your period again, so unless you want your babies REALLY freaking close together, you'll get yourself some birth control.
