Yes possible: As you describe if you had a cycle again, then, yes, you could be pregnant again. Bearing two children in less than 12 months is not common but absolutely not unheard of.

Anytime: You ovulate even if you breast feed. Unprotected sex will lead to pregnancy. Therefore, the answer is anytime.
