Hello Mummy,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for coming to us with your question.

No. There was no risk of becoming pregnant because you were wearing both underwear and pants.

Have you had a period since delivering your baby? If not, your hormones have not yet returned to normal as before you became pregnant, and you may not have even ovulated yet. Again, no risk for becoming pregnant. However, it is a good idea that your partner wear a condom each and every time you engage in sexual activity.
