How much is it possible to get pregnant again?
Every woman’s body is unique. Gynaecologists argue that pregnancy can come as early as a few weeks after giving birth. And in this matter you need to be aware. If newly minted parents return to intimate life, you need to return to contraception.

Breastfeeding. Is the method of contraception?
Lactation amenorrhea is a method of contraception when there are no months in breastfeeding. Indeed, breastfeeding produces a hormone — prolactin, which blocks ovaries from working.

Often ovulation occurs before the onset of months, and pregnancy occurs discreetly. The absence of menstrual cycle a woman perceives as a postpartum norm and notices her pregnancy late.
Forty days after childbirth, a consultation of a gynecologist is required. The doctor will perform a full examination and will pick you up contraceptives according to your contraindications and safety for the baby you are feeding.
If sexual life is resumed, but a new pregnancy is not planned, do not rely on signs and someone’s successful experience. There are effective methods of contraception allowed during lactation.
