Hi Josie

Since your period has returned, no-matter how often you get it or how strong the flow is, you can now assume that you are fertile.

If you are not ready to have another baby, do not take any chances. The withdrawal method overall is not 100% safe, so I would not recommend this. Please find a more reliable contraceptive.

There are many methods that are safe during breastfeeding...mentioned here...
