I have had some people telling me that after you give birth you don't get your period...so if you don't ger your period you can't get pregnant? right? wrong? So how come I know sibilings that are only like 11, 12, months apart! My cousins are 10 months apart wich means my aunt got pregnant right away!! I am confused? am I missing something?

Hi Leslie. After labor you have a period for about 5-7 weeks.

The bleedin you have after birth is NOT a period. It is bleeding from the birth process that gets rid of everything left. You will bleed for 2-4 weeks. Then it is possible to ovulate. That is why some siblings are so close together. It has nothing to do with getting your period. You have to ovulate to get pregnant.

like chel said, it is not a period it is lochea (sp?) which is the extra blood from pregnancy. That can last up to six or seven weeks, depending on you.. but you may get your period right after or right before the bleeding ends. It could be a long long time... but after that you can ovulate at any time. My doctor made my go on birth control three weeks after delivery because he said it may be possible to ovulate even then (although you shouldn't be having s_x until the pregnancy bleeding ends, your cervix is still open and are at very high risk for infection)

I think some think you don't have your period because if you b___stfeed the hormones which produce the mild also usually keeps the ovaries from ovulating. But we can't say this for all women because some still get pregnant while b___stfeeding.
