Some women wonder if they could become more fertile after giving birth. How long it takes for any woman to get pregnant is largely a matter of chance, but some women might become more fertile after childbirth in certain circumstances. Improvement in endometriosis because of suppression by high levels of estrogen and progesterone during pregnancy. Correction of hormone dysfunctions and spontaneous regulation of ovulation if there were problems before achieving the last pregnancy. Correction of tubal or ovarian adhesions, uterine problems, or male factors before or during the last pregnancy. Other women might find themselves to be less fertile after delivery because of new problems that developed during the last pregnancy, or during labor, delivery, or postpartum. These include onset of hormone dysfunctions and irregular ovulation, cervical or uterine infections, or new problems with the male partner. You cannot predict how soon your fertility might return after you deliver your baby. It depends on when you start ovulating, and this varies among women. Make sure you are using an effective form of birth control if you don’t want to get pregnant soon after your childbirth.
