It's possible you are pregnant, but it's really not recommended to get pregnant within 18 months of a c-section. It's actually not even recommended to get pregnant this early if you have a vaginal birth.

If you ARE pregnant it is quite possible that you and the baby will be perfectly fine, but it's also possible that you both will have serious complications.

If you are not pregnant now I highly recommend waiting another year or so for a chance at optimal health and safety.

It can be safe, but is highly recommended to wait. Your uterus was cut into, with a growing baby too soon, your uterus has not had time to heal entirely. You could rupture your uterus endangering your life and your unborn babies lives. It is recommended to wait 1-2 years for proper healing. Tell your husband it is too soon.

Well, the reality is that you could be. For now on, practice safe sex until you find out for sure, and continue to practice it in the future. Let him know the risks of you getting pregnant right now, and he may stop pushing.

thank you; but am still thinking right now because he dischared inside of me and i know it is possible that i am pregnant right now. It wasn't planned he didn't actually talked to me about having a nex child which makes me so sad right now it was after that i told him i wasn't ready for a next child.
