Possibly pregnant: If you had unprotected intercourse you may be pregnant. If a pregnancy test is negative, you may want to go on birth control. Typically, spacing pregnancies out 1 1/2 - 2 years is beneficial to mother and off spring.

Two tests: You will need to do a pregnancy test if you miss your cycle since 3 weeks post partum is about the time one might start ovulating. Then schedule a visit to have your vaginal discharge evaluated to determine if there is an infection present. Consider starting birth control so that you can control when you get pregnant again.
