I would have thought that after a baby ripping up all your insides coming out of you, thatd be the least fertile time, why is it the most?

This. I am 11 months PP and still no AF. He is not even EBF anymore he only really feeds maybe once or twice a day and it is more comfort before going to sleep than an actual feed.

you're not most fertile, its just easyier to get pregnant because the hole in your cervix is slightly bigger after you have a baby than b4

incorrect.



after you have a baby and deliver vaginally, your cervix is ALWAYS a little bit open.
