Re: Are women REALLY more fertile their first few months postpartum?
I am thinking it is true for women who do not EBF. I had a really hard time getting pregnant with DD1, but after her I have been pretty much able to get pregnant right away. I don't EBF because of medical issues and I usually have had to stop BFing altogether by 12 weeks. I have always gotten my PP AF back around 8-9 weeks and I get pregnant pretty quickly after that. DD1 was 4 months old when I got pregnant with DD2. (There is a larger gap between DD2 and DS1 because I got an IUD at my 6 week checkup.) DS1 was 7 months old when I got pregnant with DS2 and DS2 was 8 months old when I got pregnant with DS3.
