How Soon After Birth Can You Get Pregnant Again?

You’ve recently given birth to a new baby! Your little one is only three months old, but you feel like you might be pregnant again. Is that possible?

Yes, it is. Some experts say that unless a woman is breastfeeding full time, the time right after giving birth can be one of the most fertile. Therefore, caution needs to be taken.

Of course, it is not recommended to resume sex until at least four weeks after giving birth (6 weeks if you’ve had a C-section.) However, after that point, a new pregnancy could easily occur.

If you think you might be pregnant, Assure Women’s Center is your best first step! We can provide a free pregnancy test, as well as an ultrasound so you can know exactly how far along you are and to determine if the pregnancy is viable (will continue.) We would love to help at either one of our two Centers in Omaha. Call 402-397-0600 for an appointment today.
