Contraception Worry-Uh Oh

My LB is 7 weeks on Wednesday and DH and I DTD for the first time yesterday since the birth.

The doctor prescribed me the the pill I used to be on, Dianet, which is fine and I started taking it Wednesday. Doc told me 24 hours later would be safe for DTD, so 4 days later (to be extra safe or so we thought) away we went! No pants dance!

Afterwards, as I am paranoid about becoming preg again, I double checked the instructions to just ease my mind (yes I know I should have checked FIRST but I trusted what the doc said!)

It said SEVEN DAYS!! Not 24 hours!

Anyone know what the likelihood is of conception after 4 days instead of 7 of starting to take the pill again? I know I’m extra fertile rn too sad

Are your periods back? Are you bfing?

I guess if you are really worried you could go get the MAP.

Go and speak to a pharmacist.

And please just say sex.... no need to sugar coat it - 'no pants dance' - we are all adults and know what sex is!!

No pants dance is fun tho grin

I had sort of light spotting and cramping about 2 weeks ago but never fully came on like before. And not breast feeding...😳

Ask a pharmacist for the MAP

It's very unlikely you're pregnant but I know several women who have babies that would've been conceived at about this time after their firstborn.
