Sex after 3 weeks and the condom broke

I gave birth 3 weeks ago and me and my partner had sex for the first time after giving birth and unfortunately the condom broke 😱 I was wondering if anyone knew what are the chances of getting pregnant again straight after giving birth!?
I haven't had a period yet but I'm still super worried 😩

I don't think it's high, but would you want to take a chance on it? I wouldn't. When did this happen? If very recently I would go and ask for the morning after pill first thing tomorrow.

I live in a small village and I feel like everyone would know I went in for the Morning after pill if I went to my pharmacy! Where else could I go for it?

You're really fertile after giving birth, which is why all the midwives and everyone else bang on about contraception so much, so I really would go get the morning after pill!

Are you exclusively breastfeeding? It's not contraception but EBF can lower the chances slightly.

Not to terrify you, but I conceived my twins 3 weeks after giving birth... (ended up with 3 DC within 8 months) - I'd suck it up and get the morning after pill if the idea of a pregnancy terrifies you!

Your GP.

You live in a village not bloody Antarctica so unless you want another child I suggest you make a trip to your GP or pharmacist and pretty quick .
If you don't want to go to your local pharmacist then take a bus and go to any pharmacy and ask for the morning after pill .
Have you not heard of Boots, you can buy it over the counter for about £20/25 .
