Re: How Soon Can You Get Pregnant after Giving Birth

Well the docs say you shouldnt have sex for atleast 6 weeks after but I did after 4 weeks because my period stopped but @ 4 weeks my doc told me since i had sex already that i should take the morning after pill if i didnt want 2 get preg right away because its the EASIEST time 2 get pregnant. so the answer is yes. yes yes yes.

When having sex after giving birth, you should use a backup form of birth control for at least 30 days. That means taking the pill and using a condom. You are very fertile during this time.
