Hello,

Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX

It is unlikely for ovulation to occur during breast feeding.

However, presence of slight bleeding during lactation can be due to anovulatory cycles.
Anovulatory cycles mean that bleeding occurs in the absence of ovulation.
It is not possible to conceive during anovulatory cycles.

If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.

Hello and welcome back,

Well, it is difficult to be say with certainity whether you are pregnant or not. However the chances seems less likely. You can get urine pregnancy test to exclude the possibility.

If you still have more queries, I will be glad to answer.
