A 31-year-old female asked:
when does your immune system get strong again 3 months after having a baby?

The immune system...: ...Weakens temporarily during pregnancy to prevent your body from rejecting the baby. Some illnesses such as flu are more dangerous to pregnant women. Once fetal rejection is no longer a concern, the immune system can return to normal, pre-pregnancy state.
