I know i was irresponsible, but 6 weeks ago I had my son Isaac. His dad & I had unprotected sex 2x he didnt ejaculate in me.

I hadn't gotten my period but today i have cramps & VERY light bleeding(light pink)...I know breast feeding delays your period. I'm giving my baby both breast milk & formula...more formula.

Chances of being pregnant again?

I got my period six to eight weeks after each of my five children were born and all of them were breastfed. It could also still be post partum bleeding if you are overdoing things a bit.

LOL, I always love this question... "what are the chances of being pregnant?" Forgive me for just having fun with this one, ok? I think the question you are meaning to ask is different than the one you did ask... :)



My cousin asked me this relentlessly for a while after having unprotected sex. My answer is this: your chance of being pregnant after sex is ALWAYS 50/50. Either you are or you aren't. There aren't degrees of being pregnant. What's my chances of driving my car today and getting in a wreck? Well, based on the last 16 years I have had my license, I have never had a wreck. SO, my chances are 100% that I will NOT have a wreck today, right? I can look carefully everywhere while I drive. I can wear a seatbelt, I can not talk on my cell phone....do everything right... that doesn't mean that random car won't strike me today. My husband and I had unprotected sex for 8 years (trying to get pregnant) and it didn't happen until the 8th year. My friend had just gone off birth control and got pregnant the first month...just after the kid was born she had an IUD and got pregnant again. Another friend has had four children and NUMEROUS miscarriages - you sneeze at her and she is pregnant. But my cousin and his wife can't get pregnant for anything. SO, what are your chances? 50/50. It happens or it doesn't.



Thanks for letting me play with this answer! :)

It might just be your period. With both my son and daughter, I got mine right around 6 weeks after delivery even though I was breastfeeding. The first time it happened I called the doctor who had me come in and then he told me it was just my period. I think every person is different but just because you breastfeed doesn't mean you don't have a period. You could, it just might not be regular. Having had mine at 6 weeks, my daughter is now 3 months and I haven't had another since. But if you are concerned, call your doctor. At least you will have certainty.

Yes. My friend got pregnant right after her first, about the same time. But the only way to know for sure is to get a blood test. I had implantation bleeding too.

I have two girls 10 months apart. The first time I had sex after the first one was born (the night of my 8 wk postpartum check up to be exact). I got pregnant again. There is a good chance you are.

It's probably just the return of your period. Breastfeeding only keeps your cycle at bay if you're exclusively breastfeeding. If you are supplementing a lot with formula then your supply will be likely to dwindle and your fertile cycle will return.

I'd be willing to guess that this is your cycle returning but the only way to be certain is to do a pregnancy test.

Breast feeding does delay your period, it doesn't delay you producing eggs. You are not alone in this apparently many, I said MANY women go back to hospital/doctor and start the journey of pregnancy. There is also a possibility of you actually having a period also. I never had cramps pre-pregnancy yet now my cycle is completely 100% different.

Your best bet is to seek medical advice, consult your doctor because it could be caused by afterbirth that hasn't been removed or other complications.

Never assume anything just check with your doctor and take it from there :)

yes breast feeding dosent stop you getting pregnant me and my ex had sex 1 week after giving birth my choice but i still made sure we used protection i was feeding my son still but fell pregnant when he was 7 months through condom failure (ironically they was from the family planning lol) do a test to be certain. i did one to shut my ex husband up and to prove him wrong lol i was the wrong one i cried for 2 weeks when i found out then it was hard work but my 2 are the best off friends( dont get me wrong they scrap as well ) and even now at ages 9 and 8 if upset or worried find each other and hold hands and well i love them to bit and would'nt have it any other way xx good luck do the test and put your mind at ease okay xxx

My son is 7 months old and I barely got my period but I was bfing exclusively and the first time I got prego he never came in me but the pre cum got me pregnant obviously.. yes there is a big chance that you got pregnant because after you have a baby you are most fertile.. good luck!

If you're not exclusively breastfeeding, and more frequently than once every 6 hours, your cycle may have begun again.

My mother was breast feeding my brother and went in for her 6 week check up and found out she was pregnant with me.

Yes, pretty much every time you have sex you can get pregnant. Even if the guy does not ejaculate inside of you.

I had my first period after one month after giving birth and I was breastfeeding.

I had two kids.. Only breast-fed both and got my period right away,and literally right away.. Chances are that it's just your period.. But be careful unless you want to get pregnant again soon

You could be spotting still or it could be your first AF. With all 3 of my kids I was still spotting at 6 wks postpartum, and didn't get AF until well after their first b-days. But yes you could also be pregnant.



And pre ejaculate has more sperm in it than the regular stuff. Pulling out is not a good form of birth control.

Both my children were strictly breastfed, and I got my period back right away both times. I also found that with each one my period was heavier and I got worse craps ( I never had cramps before) chances are you are just getting your period. I would suggest ( I know they suck) using condoms in the future though.

Some women get their periods right away. go take the test before you get too worried.

Yes. Breast feeding isn't 100% effective birth control especially if you weren't using other protectiong. There can be sperm in pre ejaculate fluid. There is a slim chance but it is possible. Home preg tests are pretty sensitive now days. Make sure that you follow up with your doctor.

Highly unlikely but it could happen

Your body will go through getting back to normal for 6-8 weeks after delivery so it is probably just your uterus going through the final cleansing from having baby. Take a test but it won't show a positive until you are about 14 days past ovulation/implantation. Have you had your 6 week check with your doctor?

I would say that its possible but very unlikely. Its probably just lokia again because you are to active or maybe a period although I would say that's unlikely if you are breast feeding. I breastfed my 3 girls and didn't get my periods back for 14 months with the first 2 and 11 months with the 3rd. He didn't ejaculate in you either so that also greatly reduces the chances. Again, its possible and if you are worried then just take a test but I had bleeding stop and start up again 10 weeks after my second baby was born because I didn't rest enough.

Yes. I think so. Some can tell you BEFORE you even miss your period nowadays.

Then it COULD be your period, although I breast fed and didn't get one for 4 months. You better go to the doctor if you're cramping.....
