I'd think low, really low chances of Oing. But would be careful. Maybe use a barrier method if he is worried.

I did have a friend get pregnant with #3 right away. So I would use caution, but exclusive bf'ing will probably protect you for a bit.

um. dont know the chances. but my first son. i went to my 6 week apt & there was another girl there for her 6 week apt & she came out bawling & freaking out ..she was pregnant

really left an impression on me! i hate hate hate condoms..but the few times we have used them was when i was postpartum & hadent had my 6 week apt , or was waiting for my mini pill to kick in!
no glove = no love!
I could not have handled having babes so close!

i would not chance it.

My mom and her brother are 10 months apart, soooo.... It is possible. I would use a condom, they are annoying (I have only used them once, DH and I were curious about what it would feel like, lol) But until you can get some birth control. I could imagine having 2 that close together. My husband would be happy if I came back from my 6 week appt pregnant though, lol.

2% of ovulation/conception before six months IF:
1) Exclusive breastfeeding on demand. No pacifier, formula or other breastmilk substitutes, nursing at least 4-hourly with no more than one gap of 6 hours per day
2) No return of periods (a bleed at 6 weeks postpartum doesn't count.)

Oh I want that conundrum! 'Cause that will mean I've had my baby, and my body is working properly, which it's never done!
What about getting some fun condoms. There are some great ones out there.... (DH and I used them, I've never used any other form of birth control)

condoms are a NO they irritate me so bad it hurts I only go 3hrs once a day w/ out bf'ding that is when I first put him to bed otherwise he eats about every 1-2hrs and only use a passy in the car when I can't get to him but he won't hardly take it. He is getting a V done on Friday so that will be that but we still have to watch it till they say he is clear but gosh I am dying over here LOL

Are a lot of you DTD before 6 weeks? I thought it increases the chances of infection?
