Re: I'm still breastfeeding and not planning on another baby quite yet. Is it possible for me to get pregnant?
Yes. While it's true that breastfeeding can potentially keep you from ovulating for a while, many a mom has been surprised by a positive pregnancy test even before her first postpartum period. To play it safe, use backup contraception until you're truly ready for another child. (Use a barrier method, or talk to your doctor about IUDs, the mini pill, and other birth control options that are safe to use while nursing.)
