Can I be pregnant if I am breastfeeding,have not got periods since delivery and have unprotected sex ?

Iam at 19. iam 5 1 and iam weight about 130. I have a breastfeed baby that will be 7months on the 22. But lately my breat have been tender and i have been experiencing headaches. I have not had a period since i have had her and now iam experiencing clear discharge that wets my panties. My lower abdomine is tender when pressure is applied to it. and my husband and i have sex on the regular unprotected. could this mean i am pregnant again?

Hi,
there are two things going to gather,one you might have some infection in the breast as they are tender,of course it may be due to collection of milk also.
There is chance of infection in your genital tract leading to tenderness in lower abdomen and discharge.
pregnancy is less likely as during breast feeding period is not there but it is not 100 pct sure that pregnancy is not possible.
You consult your gynac and seek her advice.
