do I need to worry?

I have a 11 week old boy & I am breast feeding but also formula feeding (roughly 60% formula 40% breast) I have not had a period as yet but I recently (2days ago) had unprotected sex with my partner and I am not sure if I should be worried about possibly being pregnant or not?

Anytime you have sex (even protected) pregnancy should be a concern. Birth control of some sort should always be used if you are sexually active unless you want to become pregnant.

That being said... breastfeeding CAN help to prevent ovulation, but it's not that reliable even if you are exclusively breastfeeding.

Worrying will not help anything though. Personally, I'd wait a few weeks to a month and then test... and don't have unprotected sex again unless you WANT to become pregnant again so soon.
