Birth Control & Fertility - Should I take the AM after pill?

My last period was i think of the 6th of oct.. I started taking my birth control on the 18th.. The doc said it should be okay. I just had a baby two months ago and am petrified of getting pregnant again.. But some sperm might have gotten around my vagina.. and i hear that you can get pregnant that way... I was just wondering if i should og get the morning after pill??

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It is difficult, better say,impossible to get pregnant within 8 weeks after child birth.Do not worry unnecessarily and continue to take those birth control pills as advised.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
