"Can I get pregnant 4 weeks after giving birth? What are the chances?" -Mandy, Ironton, OH

After giving birth you may ovulate at any time and, therefore, you have the chance of getting pregnant as well. Your chances of conceiving soon after birth increase if you have not been using a reliable contraceptive. So, take precautions to prevent pregnancy if you are not ready for another baby, keep an eye on your symptoms, and take a test if you suspect you are pregnant. -Emma
