Asked a question last month

Is it possible to get pregnant when you are lactating a 5 month old baby., Since 10-15 days my bp is going very low.. I have a 5 month old baby.. He is on exclusively breast feed.. What are the chances of getting pregnant when you are breast feeding?

Where am I?

Hi 

you can use breastfeeding as a efficient method of contraception if 

Your baby is less than 6 months old

  1. Your monthly periods have not returned
  2. Your baby is fully  breastfed
  3. Your baby should be breastfed at least every 4 hours and not have more than one 6 hour stretch between breastfeeding in 24 hrs.

Then the contraceptive efficiency is 98 percent . 

Yes you can get pregnant on feeding . Kindly do a video consult for methods of contraception during feeding
