Postpartum childbirth occurs within 40 days, but this can vary from woman to woman. Puerperal blood in medical terms is called lochia, red in color and more volume then gradually decreases and becomes vaginal discharge yellow. The puerperal blood from the uterine wall will be released after the labor phase, then the uterus will get ready for the next menstrual cycle which is influenced by reproductive hormones in the body.
A woman who is childbirth and has stopped bleeding after childbirth, then have sexual intercourse before the first menstruation after childbirth, and coincide with the fertile period during ovulation (egg production), the chances of pregnancy can still occur.
Unfortunately, it is difficult to know with certainty when the fertile period occurs, so that sperm can successfully fertilize eggs that have been produced post-partum.
To find out more certain, do not hesitate to do the examination and consultation directly to the obstetrician to get more complete information.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
