I was always told not to have sex until after the 6 week check up. Why are you putting yourself at risk of getting pregnant again when you are not married and you just had a baby. Your body needs time to heal--let your doctor know what you are doing so they can check for any problems.
Don't have unprotected sex!!!
Good luck.

Absolutely you could be pregnant again. I'm really not sure if the doctor can tell this early or not - you might ask about getting a blood test.

A blood test might be able to tell. I read somewhere that it can work 7-12 days after. They might have to wait another week and test.

You definitly could be pregnant again. Are you nursing? That would help you NOT be pregnant, but it's possible. After we had our first, I think we only waited 3 weeks and we were okay, but I did a lot of praying :.). They may be able to tell, but probably not. I'd just be extra careful if you don't want another one so soon.

You very well could be pregnant. The time right after birth is one of the most fertile times for a woman. The light bleeding could be implantation bleeding, but you wont be able to find out for sure for awhile. Just be prepared because your doctor is not going to be happy with you at your six week checkup. AND if you are planning on getting birth control pills, they will make you wait until it will be an appropriate time to take a pregnancy test and take one before you can begin the birth control.

Yes you CAN get pregnant this soon, but it will be too soon to tell, even if the doctor does a blood test, you will have to wait almost a full month to find out. If you bled a little I would expect that I guess, depending on how healed you were down there.
