I bled for 4 weeks then had first AF at 12 weeks, had a chemical pregnancy at 16weeks, and fell pregnant (and happily expecting a little girl now) when he was 5m old. The two AFs I did have were regular to the day, and all that was despite breastfeeding my son until he was 9.5m. Smile

First baby (natural) I bled for three weeks, b/f for two and had AF at 7 weeks.
This time (section) I bled for 4 weeks did not b/f and had AF at 5 weeks.

Does the coil not work for you? I also cannot take anything that hormonaly goes through my body as I bleed a lot and often, but have to have something as I suffer from hormone related migraines and anaemia if I don't, and as the coil is 'localised' to the area it works much better for me.

There are contracptions out there to test your body temps to back up the withdrawal methods

I think it would be very unusual to get pregnant from sex 3 weeks after giving birth but not totally impossible , it would mean you'd have to ovulate between 3-4 weeks after having your baby , I know at least a couple of times after mine I had my first AF at about 6 weeks so if you do ovulate before that first period then I suppose conceiving around 3-4 weeks after a baby is possible Shocked Laughing
Might be worth a test Smile Although if you were still bleeding off and on for a while after then its less likely as you'd be losing lining Question
There's something called persona as well which is similar to the cbfm but for contraceptive purposes, all you do is pee on a stick in the morning and it tells you if you're "safe" based on your hormones Laughing ,if not then you just avoid sex or use condoms until it shows you have ovulated, you can buy non latex condoms from places like amazon , they are more expensive though
Some women use a cbfm for the same purpose and just avoid sex on the High and Peak days Question
