Can I get pregnant 2 months after giving birth even if I breastfeed?

I have a 2 month old daughter and my doctor said breastfeeding can be used as birth control. If this is true, why do some people say that you are extremely fertile following birth? Thanks for your help in advance :)

Ya it was quite confusing because she gave me a pamphlet and everything on how to use BF as BC. Hear so many mixed messages about it, thank you

Your doctor is WAY offbase, and if that's the advice you're being given, I would certainly hope that you are seeking medical attention elsewhere!



You can get pregnant while breastfeeding. It is NOT birth control, nor has it ever been.
