How soon after birth are you able to get pregnant

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.

      obsessed with babywearing, cloth diapering, and breastfeeding (but not judgmental about those that aren't). I'm a SAHM that works. Loves cupcakes, kittens, and glitter; hates spiders, housework and pessimism.
