You can pregnant as soon as you ovulate. Some women ovulate four to six weeks after delivery. Others (particularly breast feeding moms) may have their first ovulation much later. How can you tell if you've ovulated? If you have a period. Unfortunately, this is not a good way to predict when you will need contraception. To avoid pregnancy soon after birth: 1. Avoid sexual intercourse for 6 weeks after delivery. This will also allow the uterus to involute properly, the vaginal tissues to heal, and decrease the risk of a uterine infection. 2. Discuss contraception with your doctor before you leave the hospital. If you plan to go on the pill, a prescription can be given to you at this time and you can start it at the appropriate time. If you plan to use depoprovera or get an IUD, let your doctor know so he or she can discuss timing with you. 3. DO NOT DEPEND on breast feeding for contraception. Unless you are breast feeding around the clock without supplementation, you probably won't get a protective effect. Even then, you can still ovulate and conceive at any time. 4. Use condoms if there's any possibility of conceiving.

After stillbirth can a woman get pregnant before she has her period?

Yes. Giving birth to a stillborn affect's a woman's ability to get pregnant no differently than a live birth. Since most doctors advise women to wait 6 weeks after giving birth, they quite often have not had a period since giving birth, but are still very likely to get pregnant the very first time they have sex after that 6 week waiting period is up. So if you do not want to get pregnant again that soon, you need to use precautions. If you do want to get pregnant again, check with your doctor to be sure it's ok for you to do so.

Is it true that you get pregnant far easier not long after giving birth if so why?

No. Your chances of getting pregnant again soon after giving birth are not higher than at any other time and could be lower if you are breastfeeding, due to certain hormones released during lactation that suppress ovulation. That said, breastfeeding is not a particularly effective means of birth control, so use an additional method if you don't wish to get pregnant again.

How soon after birth is it safe to become pregnant again?

You should seek the advise of your OB. However, it you CAN become pregnant even before your cycle returns to normal. If you do not wish to become pregnant you need to use protection. Generally, most OB's will say between 6 month to 24 months after delivery. As soon as you feel you are able to cope with another baby. With me it took 3 years, but some babies are very 'easy' and the Mom feels she can cope with another soon.
