Can I get Pregnant Right after Having a Baby?
Some women are interested in getting pregnant immediately following giving birth. However, there are some things to consider before you begin trying this. The first thing that you should think about is your body. You will need at least six weeks to heal before you are able to begin having sexual intercourse again.
In addition to this, you may need this amount of time before your body even begins ovulating again. You should track your ovulation cycle to determine when you do begin ovulating again. This is something that you can do using a basal thermometer or an ovulation predictor kit.
Another factor that you should keep in mind is that many women are not able to become pregnant after having a baby because they are breastfeeding. When a woman is breastfeeding, her body is producing great amounts of prolactin. This is what produces the milk, but it also works as a natural form of birth control. Many women will find that they are not ovulating while they are breastfeeding, at least for the first few months.
One thing that you can do if you are in this situation is to supplement with formula instead of exclusively breastfeeding. This will lower the cc that your body is producing and will help you to start ovulating once again.
