2nd Pregnancy Program?
Hello doctor, I already have my first child aged 3,6 years, and I’m promil for my 2nd child after undergoing kb injection 1 month before and then stopped in February 2018 but until now I haven’t been pregnant yet, but menstruation is running regularly, is this the effect of kb which he said can make the uterus dry? Please answer, thank you.
Hello Mrs. Lilih,
Thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com Community
There are two types of injection contraception, namely the 3-month and 1-month injection. The 3-month injection contraceptive only contains the hormone progesterone, while the 1-month injection contraceptive contains the hormones progesterone and estrogen. The hormones contained in 1 month injection of contraceptive are medroxyprogesterone acetate 50 mg and estradiol cypionate 10 mg. This hormone works by inhibiting ovulation (release of eggs), changes in cervical mucus to become thicker so that it is difficult for sperm to reach the egg, changes in the endometrium (uterine wall) to become more atrophic (thin) with inactive glands that inhibit embryo implantation, and changes the speed of transport of the egg by the fallopian tube.
These effects will return to normal (normal) after the use of injection contraceptives is stopped. However, it will take time to change to its original condition after stopping injection contraception. You cannot immediately plan a pregnancy after you stop using this contraceptive. Because the accumulation of drugs stored in body fat takes time to break down and restore hormonal balance so that fertility returns to normal. This may take several months, can be 3 months or even more than 10 months after giving up family planning. The return of the fertile period after the release of 1 month injection of contraceptives was faster than that of 3 months of injection contraception. This time period can vary from person to person. The indicator of fertility has returned is the menstrual cycle that has returned to normal / regular. If you are planning to become pregnant within one year, then you should stop injecting contraceptives within a few months, ideally 9 months.
Things you can do while waiting for your fertile period to return to normal are;
- Manage stress well. Controlling stress is one way to control hormonal balance.
- Frequency of contact more frequently. To get offspring, a person can have sex 3-4 times a week during the fertile period so that it increases the chances of having children.
- Knowing when the fertile period
- Eating healthy food, maintaining fitness by exercising, avoiding smoking and alcohol.
This is the information that can be conveyed, thank you, hope it helps.
