Can guinea pigs get pregnant straight away? A female guinea pig can fall pregnant immediately after giving birth. To prevent this from happening, you must separate the males as soon as possible. Even the baby males can impregnate their mum at around three weeks old, so they will also need to be removed from the cage.

When can you tell if a guinea pig is pregnant? If your guinea pig allows you to touch her, use your fingers to gently examine her sides and stomach. Avoid putting any pressure on her body. If you feel lumps under your fingers this is a sign the female is pregnant. If you feel movement in addition to lumpiness, that’s a clear sign she is pregnant.
