Can i get pregnant after 3 weeks of having a baby?

Can i get pregnant after 3 weeks of having a baby?

Yes, can conceive: It is possible to ovulate (release an egg) right after delivery, so it is possible to conceive if a couple has intercourse and the male partner is fertile, right after delivery. Generally, this is not recommended as there are more complications with a pregnancy conceived before 6 months postpartum (after delivery). ...Read more

Do you know of any surgeries to reduce post-partum fat?  What happens if you get pregnant after surgery?

First-diet, exercise: First, try diet and exercise. If not successful, liposuction is very good for re-sculpting the body. If you get pregnant again, you may gain weight first in areas than have not been treated. Tummy tucks (witch hazel) are great if your skin and muscles have stretched, but be sure you are done with pregancies. ...Read more

How to increase pregnancy chance while EBF with no post partum period. Baby is currently night weaned and eats every 2 1/2 hours.

Tough one: if actively breast-feeding and no menses since delivery you are not ovulating and thus unlikely to conceive or become pregnant. Sorry. Enjoy the bonding time with the one you have. Breast feeding so very important to your child especially for the first year of life. No real way to make your periods (and ovulation) start up again safely. Let nature take its course.

Don't !: It is now advisable to wait at least two years between pregnancies, c/section or not. There is a slight increased risk of autism spectrum disorder in the newborn with pregnancies less than 2 years apart. Your body needs to heal as well. Your uterine scar definitely needs to heal more than 6 months. You would be taking a chance with a life-threatening uterine scar rupture in labor. ...Read more

Unclear: The question is a little confusing. As I understand it you are 6 weeks post partum and had unprotected sex. If that is the case then check a pregnancy test in 2 weeks or if you miss your period. I am not sure what you mean by being in labor and having the baby a day later if you are now 6 weeks post partum. If I misunderstood I apologize ...Read more
