Brief Answer: CHANCE OF PREGNANCY IS QUITE RARE OR NEGLIGIBLE. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments: 1) If you are on EXCLUSIVE BREAST FEEDING following delivery of baby, then you don't get your period naturally. It is quite normal and physiological phenomena. It is called LACTATIONAL AMENORRHEA in medical term. 2) During EXCLUSIVE breast feeding for first 6 month, you can do unprotected sex and you will get more than 98% protection against unwanted pregnancy as there is no ovulation at all. In this case, you did sex with using withdrawal method (later protected sex) and there was no precum (as per your information). Therefore, chance of pregnancy is extremely RARE or NEGLIGIBLE. Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query. Wish your good health and take care yourself. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW
