A Good Type Of Birth Control Is Used For Women Aged 18 Years?
I was only 18 years old and was first pregnant, intending to postpone the next pregnancy for ± 5 years because I wanted to continue studying. What kind of KB is most suitable for me after giving birth later? and is it safe for my age that is underage?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically all family planning is safe for use by women of reproductive age. However, if you plan to breastfeed your baby after you give birth, then you are advised not to use hormonal birth control that contains estrogen hormones (such as combination birth control pills or monthly injection of birth control) because it can interfere with milk production. Safe birth control for women who are breastfeeding include breastfeeding birth control pills (or birth control pills that contain progesterone only or also called minipil), 3-month injectable birth control, implants or implants, and IUD (contraception in utero).
If indeed you are sure you want to postpone pregnancy for 5 years, then the most practical birth control program for you to use is an IUD. IUDs that contain hormones can last 3-5 years (depending on the type), while copper IUDs (Copper IUD) can last up to 10 years. You can remove your IUD at any time, and after you remove your IUD, fertility will return quickly. The following is an article that you can read about the benefits of using an IUD.
You can discuss further with your midwife or obstetrician about what birth control is most suitable for you and your partner. Make sure you ask about the strengths and weaknesses of each contraception so you can make the best decision for you and your partner.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
