Brief Answer:
Less but not nil.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for posting your query.

If she is breast feeding the chances are less but not zero. But if she is not breast feeding the chances are as good as with a normal female.

It also depends on whether her mensuration has started or not . If you have any information on whether she is breast feeding or nor and whether she is menstruating or not , kindly let me know.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarification feel free to ask.

should I or can I observe any symptoms before my periods are expected so I am doubly sure of not getting pregnant I'm in deep stress
doctor
Answered by Dr. Divakara (29 minutes later)
Brief Answer:
Symptoms are non specific.

Detailed Answer:
I think you need to relax. The chances are extremely less ( almost nil ) . There are no specific symptoms which confirms conception but common symptoms are nausea , breast tenderness , lack of appetite , Spotting ( Mild bleeding from Vagina ) But these symptoms can be seen in other conditions also.

If you want to be sure then you can take Urine Pregnancy test after 2 weeks .
