What should I do?
Fri, 03-23-2012 - 1:03pm
I have an 18 month old and had a baby on dec 21 2012. I had a c section for both babies and did not breast feed as I did not produce enough supply so the doctor had advised me to start formula. I had my post c section bleeding as per usual but I haven't had a period at all. My husband and I had intercourse twice since giving birth using the pull out method as my doctor hasn't put in my IUD as he only wants to do it when I am on my period. I don't know when people usually get their period after a c section and NOT breast feeding. Is it possible that I could be pregnant and should just do a few home tests or I'm thinking that my body is still adjusting back to its hormonal levels? Help please! Thanks

By now, you should have had your period after having the baby since you aren't breast feeding. It is possible that you ovulated before you would have started your period and got pregnant during that ovulation, so you should definitely take a pregnancy test. You definitely need to know for sure before having your IUD put in.
