It's possible to become pregnant again very soon after the birth of a baby, even if you're breastfeeding and even if your periods haven't returned.

You usually release an egg (ovulate) about two weeks before your period arrives, so it's possible to get pregnant before you have a period.

The NHS website has lots of information about contraception types and using them after giving birth.
