Question can they have more babies

I have 3 female guppies, 2 have already dropped fry in the last 2 weeks. The male is no longer in the tank (macho man disappeared) and I want to know if they will have babies again. I read that they can store sperm and was wondering if they will have more fry in another month without a male in the tank.

Thanks much

Each of the females can store viable sperm packets for about 6 months so with 3 producing females, you can expect a drop every week or two for the next 6 months.
