I had my son 4 weeks ago via c-section and today my fiance and I got carried away and we had sex, he came and I'm not on birth control yet. Is there anyway I could be pregnant again? I hope not its to soon

Yes you can, and it isn't a good idea to get pregnant again so soon after a c-section. In fact, it is recommended not to have another pregnancy for about 18 months to allow yourself time to heal. For your sake, I hope you aren't pregnant. A sensible solution would be Plan B, if it isn't too late. And then to refrain from sex until you can purchase some condoms or establish other birth control.
