Breastfeeding will reduce your chances of falling pregnant. The hormone prolactin, which stimulates breastmilk will suppress ovulation and therefore reduce your chances of falling pregnant.

Your husband will be fertile for the next three months and only after a sperm count, you will be able to confirm that the vasectomy was successful.

You can start the mini pill, as it is a progesterone based contraceptive and safe to use during breastfeeding. The chances of you falling pregnant is minimal.
