I gave birth 5 weeks ago i have had intercourse with a condoms after 2 weeks of giving birth but im nauseous and having cramping can i pregnant again?

If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
