Possible or Not?

Yes, it is possible to get pregnant while breastfeeding but the chances are slim. Why?

Natural birth control

Because, breastfeeding is a contraceptive measure. Yes, breastfeeding is natural birth control and thus, it is highly impossible to get pregnant while you are breastfeeding. Why else do you not hear about a child who is only a few months older or younger than his sibling? Do you think people carefully don’t have sex while breastfeeding? No, it is because you can’t get pregnant more often that not. It may be nearly impossible to get pregnant while breastfeeding but know that it is not altogether impossible. Breastfeeding lowers your fertility but does not make you infertile altogether. Mothers who breastfeed day as well as night won’t get their period for another year or so. Mothers who choose to wean their babies or only breastfeed during the night will get their period in five months tops.

Why is it so hard to get pregnant while breastfeeding?

It is very hard to get pregnant while breastfeeding because you don’t ovulate while you are breastfeeding. Breastfeeding brings ovulation to a stop by halting the hormones that are responsible for ovulation. So, as long as you breastfeed, you won’t ovulate, and you won’t get pregnant.

How to get pregnant while breastfeeding

Well, there are ways of increasing your odds of getting pregnant. Here are a few of them for you:

– Wean at nighttime and don’t breastfeed for at least six hours. If your baby is hungry in those six hours, wean her. If you do this, your body will come back to normal faster and all your ovulation hormones will be triggered faster. Thus, your odds of getting pregnant will increase.

– If your baby is a little older, you can consider weaning her completely. Start solids and cereal for your baby and breastfeed only once in a while. When you do this, your body will be under the illusion that you aren’t breastfeeding anymore. It will work faster to come back to normal.

The bottom line

You may try the aforementioned ways to get pregnant while breastfeeding but know that there is no guarantee. You can only try your best and leave the rest to your fate and fortune. Whether you get pregnant while breastfeeding or not completely depends on the state of your body and how well and fast it can come back to normal. Be patient and give your body the time it needs.
