I have a 5week old son and me an my partner slept together for the 1st time since having him last night. I know after having a baby your really fertile anyway, i breast fed for the first 3 weeks (till my milk went) but i still think i could have a pregnancy risk. We were drinkin for the first time since before i was carrying him (about 10 months) and didn't think till afterwards to use anything! He did pull out but i know the withdrawl method is pointless and he also came as soon as he pulled out. So i'm thinking my pregnancy risk is quite high, any advice?

Actually, after childbirth, you're generally not very fertile, especially if you've been breastfeeding.

But regardless? If you do not wish to risk getting pregnant again, I'd just advise you go out and get emergency contraception today.
