Your menstrual cycle may return two or three weeks after delivery. Once you ovulate you can also become pregnant again. It is entirely possible to be pregnant very soon after childbirth. Doctors advise you wait six weeks for sex after childbirth.
Breastfeeding can ensure that your menstrual period returns after delivery. Every time the baby sucks the nipple, hormonal balance is restored.
Problems getting pregnant after childbirth
Doctors often advise to wait from half a year to a year. This will allow your body to recover from the first birth. If you give birth through a caesarean section, it is important that your doctor keeps an eye on you. It is possible that the uterine wall is not yet sufficiently healed.
Although it is recommended to wait a year for your next pregnancy, if you get pregnant sooner, a fast-paced pregnancy will not cause any problems. However, it is important that you are observed closely.
Breastfeeding while pregnant
You can continue breastfeeding until late pregnancy. The breast milk will change during the course of pregnancy and your nipples may be extra sensitive. Some mothers also say they have an additional nauseous feeling during feeding or experience a decline in milk production. Doctors may advise you to switch to replacement foods. But if you feel well and you would like to continue breastfeeding for a long time, then there is no obstacle under normal conditions. You can even tandem after birth: two kids of different ages. After the delivery, the milk automatically adjusts to the needs of the youngest breast child. And if you feed more than one child, your body will also make more milk.
