You can get pregnant right away! Most doctors suggest waiting at least 6 weeks before having intercourse, but not everyone follows those suggestions. Though unlikely - especially if you are breastfeeding - it is possible to get a positive pregnancy test as early as 4 weeks after delivery.


You can get pregnant between 2 - 6 weeks after birth, if you can't wait to have sexual intercourse with your SO. I have a friend that have 4 children within 11 months apart each.
