You have sex every day with a 4 month old baby? shock Jesus.

I didn't have sex for 13 months after my DS came along shock

I don't know the answer to your question but I couldn't help but respond with my shock face.

Good luck!!

My friend conceived when her twins were 3 months old (and not on purpose!!)

What's the hurry? It takes on average 9 months to conceive and that's not taking into account the fact that you've just given birth. Relax and give your body time to heal.

I actually got pregnant with my first 1month after trying😌 So when do a postnatal woman start ovulating again ?

Yes, what is the hurry? confused

I guess you will get pregnant when your body decides it's recovered enough. They tend to say a year for everything to return to normal.

Why are you so desperate for another baby, when you have a 4 month old. Just relax enjoy your baby and if it happens it happens

user1486273640 Sun 05-Feb-17 20:50:43

There is no hurry I am just wondering what is going on

jackieeee Sun 05-Feb-17 20:51:35

Nothing going on, i think all
Women are different but im sure i read it could take up to a year after having baby.

Because when I'm researching second infertility keeps coming up and it's scaring me 😩That's all I can find I don't think I'm searching the right thing

Oysterbabe Sun 05-Feb-17 20:57:22

You conceived your first after 1 month, you're only 17, you do not have secondary infertility.
Growing a baby and giving birth takes a lot out of you and the body needs to heal. Even if you hadn't just had a baby? 4 months is no time at all, a doctor would tell you to go away and come back in 8 months.

Isn't this your second thread on this?

Relax, and stop putting so much pressure on yourself. Four months-post birth is not that long.

your 17 right?

Why do you keep posting this? You had a thread this morning which answered your question.

Are you breastfeeding?

Sparklingbrook Sun 05-Feb-17 21:38:20

YY, looks like the Op has had lots of replies this morning. confused

If you're having regular periods then your fertility has likely returned already (ie you've started ovulating again) this doesn't mean you will fall pregnant immediately.

You have just a 20-25% chance of conception in any given month, not just you, any fertile woman having unprotected sex around ovulation.

There's no need for you to worry at all.

I do think you're being very naive in TTC again so soon at your age though (and I say that as 23 year old with 3yo and a 1.5 year old). Everything is still very new for
you and frankly 4 month old babies are quite easy compared to a 9mo crawling baby or a 1yo toddler who wants to be in everything and has taken a keen interest in climbing for example. Basically what I'm saying is you might want to 'find your feet' a bit a more before you consider adding another child into the mix.
