Is it possible to get pregnant so soon after giving birth?

It’s very easy to get pregnant right after giving birth

We did it once when our son was 3 months old. Our boys are now 4 and 5. 12 months, 3 weeks and 5 days apart :upside_down_face: wouldn’t have it any other way though :blue_heart::green_heart:

If you didn’t want to be pregnant this soon you think you would’ve used your brain and started using contraception as soon as you had your baby :woman_facepalming:


I had both my kids really close together, so the answer to your question is YES

My first 2 are 11 months apart :two_hearts:

Lol I heard your more fertile after having a bby omg I’ll pray for you

This definitely happened to me with my babies. And honestly… I wouldn’t have it any other way. I also had a c section with my son before I got pregnant with my little girl. And everything was totally fine.

Honestly can’t believe your even asking this question :woman_facepalming:t2: of corse you can if you’ve had unprotected sex :rofl:


Yes. You’re incredibly fertile. Two of my friends got pregnant right after as did my mom. My brother and I are 10&1/2 months apart

Your odds are astronomical right after giving birth. It’s one of the reasons you are told to not have sex. Along with your body needing time to heal.

Have you ever read a sex Ed book…?

It depends on your body you are more fertile after having a baby so is highly likely but stressing yourself about it will only be hard on you talk to your doctor about birth control and see what would best fit your needs. I’ve never gotten pregnant that soon after having a baby and 3 out of 4 of my daughters were conceived on some form of birth control

Yes. in my opinion you’re more likely to get pregnant because your hormones are still going crazy … Which is why my 2 youngest are very close in age .

I got pregnant with baby #3 when baby #2 was only 2 weeks old!!! :woman_facepalming:t2::woman_facepalming:t2::woman_facepalming:t2::woman_facepalming:t2: And then baby #3 was 3 weeks early, so they are 9 months and 3 weeks apart!

Not being rude or shame anyone here at all but 1) anytime you have unprotected sex it’s possible 2) you are more fertile after having a baby 3) you have a wound the size of a dinner plate left from your placenta so the risk of infection is even more of a concern.

Most women are very fertile after giving birth!

:joy::joy:🙋🏻🙋🏻 precum can easily knock you up because your so fertile… I had my baby march 31st had sex 3 weeks after pulled out and now i have a 7 month old and I’m about to be 7 months pregnant :joy: due in feb …

My oldest 2 are 10 months and 8 days apart. It can happen. They are now 18 and 17 :blush:

My baby is almost 2 and I have not been pregnant since.

Aren’t we supposed to be waiting 6 weeks or being cleared by your dr before having sex or am I missing something?
There is a reason MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS tell you no sex for at least 6 weeks, ESPECIALLY after a c-section.


Anytime you have unprotected sex there is a chance of pregnancy… and you are most fertile after having a baby

Everyone saying women are most fertile after giving birth need to do more research. I just looked it up and its not necessarily true

Sorry but it is :woman_facepalming:t2:I had my daughter 13/04/17 and couple months later I got pregnant with a second girl born 01/06/18

Yes… I was pregnant within 6 weeks of giving birth 11 months in between my middle kids

Very much possible, I had one born in February and the other December of the same year.

Yup :raised_back_of_hand:t3: I was pregnant by my 6 week appointment but didn’t know. I was prob like 3 weeks so it wasn’t testing positive yet. Good luck.

Very possible, and high risk so soon post c-section (higher likelihood of uterine rupture)

I hear your most fertile after you just have a baby… good luck

Yes I have had Irish twins. My first 2 are 11 months apart

Like everyone has said, you are most fertile after having a baby. I got pregnant with my 2nd baby 3 months after giving birth to my first. Was not planned or expected.

Yep, my friend got pregnant 5 weeks after delivery.

You are most fertile after you give birth and also right after a miscarriage that’s what my doctor told me

Temporary lapse in judgement is the best form of birth control. You’re safe :wink:

My nephews are 1 year and 2 week apart. It can happen. Be careful!!!

That soon after a csection would be rough. I’ve had 3 and my doc advised me to wait 2 years in between.
Granted I’ve known people to successfully do it but supposedly it’s risky, not to mention I’m sure it’d be painful without letting your body properly heal.
With my 3rd I waited 2 weeks to have sex, my others I did the full 6 weeks, but I was terrified and ended up getting a plan b and didn’t do it again for a bit :woman_facepalming:t2::rofl:
