Can you get pregnant while breastfeeding?

The short answer is yes! It is a myth that breastfeeding means you can’t fall pregnant. While you may experience a time of delayed fertility during breastfeeding, it’s possible to get pregnant any time from about three weeks after giving birth. If you don’t want to get pregnant again, it’s wise to use a reliable form of contraception.
