I’m 4 weeks postpartum I had sex

Patient: I’m 4 weeks postpartum I had sex and we used the pull out method. He did not cum inside me but I’m worried about pre cum. 2 days after the sex I’m having stingy discharge. Could I be pregnant. What do I need to do. Please help!

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Ovulation in some woman can resume within 4 weeks and pregnancy can happen postpartum. As there was no ejaculation and only pre-ejaculate, and if you are sure about this, there is very little chance of pregnancy, almost nil. Yet, test with a home pregnancy test after 20 days of the last intercourse.Hope this helped.Regards
