My wife is breastfeeding our daughter exclusively. She does not even allow her to have a pacifier. The baby is now 3 months old. After the intial bleeding from labor ended about 5 weeks after the deliver, my wife saw blood a few days ago. So she was free from blood for little less than a month. Does this mean that she has become fertile again? What are the chances of her becoming pregnant from this point on? Even though she is breastfeeding.

We do not want to conceive at this point but at the same time we are not using any birth control.

Thanks for any advice.

It sounds like her cycle could be returning. It's ALWAYS good to use birth control if you do not want to conceive.
