breastfeeding and conception Rss

Does anybody actually know the trtuth about if you can get pregnant while you are breastfeeding.

I have a 10 month old girl and I am breastfeeding and still havent got my first period. My MIL says I can still get pregnant and my doctor says that I cant until I get my first period.

Does anybody actually know??

Hi Lydia,

My word you can get pregnant whilst breastfeeding! The point being that you don't know when your first period is going to be, so having unprotected sex, you could get pregnant.

Take care,

Hi Lydia

I agree with Tepe.

I have a friend who is living proof you can get pregnant while breastfeeding and she hadn't even started her period! She fell pregnant when her baby was only about 3 months old so it can definantly happen.

I am also pregnant with my second child and was still breastfeeding my baby girl 5 times a day when I fell pregnant (however my period started again 8 weeks after she was born).
