Pregnancy while breastfeeding Chick+6.5! Due October 18; 6 kids; 1 angel baby; Colorado 7766 posts

So, how common is it if your cycle hasn't resumed? I usually don't get af while breastfeeding until 15ish months PP. I am unable to take hormonal birth control so DH and I (until he gets snipped...) use a combination of condoms and pull and pray. I am so afraid to get pregnant though so we rarely have sex. Anyone know the odds?

They say that for the first 6 months it's extremely effective IF you are EBF and nursing at least every four hours. But I don't really know from experience, and personally I don't think I would count on it.

Lol, I love that my DH and I are not the only pull and pray people. I have no idea what the odds are I just knpw it can happen. It happened to me and my Aunt.

I've gotten pregnant twice while breastfeeding, but both times mh cycles had resumed normally.
