Customer Question

I am 4 weeks pp and my boyfriend and I began to have sex again. It has been a week or two since the first time we had aex without a condom and now I have been cramping for a couple of days. What could that possibly mean?

Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.
It's hard to know what it means without an exam. Since you're only 4 weeks pp, it's probably likely to be related to your recent pregnancy. Possibly there is a small piece of placenta that is still inside, or your uterus is just cramping some as it shrinks back down.
If an STD is a possibility, I would get checked for that, since and STD can cause cramping and discomfort.
Implantation cramping is a very remote possibility, especially because pregnancy is such a remote possibility only 4 weeks pp.
If the cramping continues or gets more severe, I would see your doctor for an exam.

Could that result in pregnancy even though I just had a baby a month ago?

As I said, pregnancy is a very remote possibility. It's not impossible, but it's highly unlikely so soon after delivery.
