I was wondering now that I am on birth control am I still fertile ? If I don’t use a condom well I get pregnant ?
How long does it take for my birth control to start working ?

This is a loaded question :) Are you breastfeeding your son? For some girls, if they breastfeed, it decreases your probability for getting pregnant.
Have you had a period since giving birth? I’m assuming it was a vaginal birth? Most likely you’re fine having sex without a condom right now; however, if I were you, I’d much rather err on the safe side and wait about 2 weeks from Feb 15 before having condomless sex.
I know that makes it a pain, but … you probably don’t want to be right back in the world of the bump too quickly!
