We recently had a baby girl about 2-3 weeks ago. But after the baby was born, we both indulged in Sex. We have read in several articles that the chances of conceiving are high within 2-3 weeks after delivery. Although we are sure that we did not complete the inception, we still want to consult. What are the chances of conceiving and how to avoid if there should be a chance of conceiving?

Thanks for your query.

There is very very remote chances of conceiving in your case.As the menstruation takes a minimum of 4 weeks to happen after the delivery and during this period the egg won't be released so no chances of pregnancy.

Please use barrier method of contraception like condom to avoid getting pregnant during the early postpartum time.Other barrier methods like Copper T is available.
Pills like Progestins only pills can be taken safely during this period and the above methods doesn't affect the breastfeeding of the baby.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
