A Sure Sign Of Pregnancy After Having A Late Period?
, I want to ask … I am a mother of 4 children who are all intense breastfeeding at her age … all within a distance of 2.5 years. This is because I did menstruate after the average child was 1.3 years old … after the first menstruation … it must have been pregnant … Now my 4th child is 1.6 years old but still doesn’t … how come feeling like being pregnant. Is it possible to get pregnant even though you haven’t had your period after the puerperium? Thanks in advance
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Basically, women can still get pregnant even though they haven't returned their period from a previous delivery.
This is because the most important thing for pregnancy can occur is not the menstruation itself, but the process of ovulation or release of eggs from the ovaries to be fertilized by sperm cells. This process can most quickly occur around 6-12 weeks postpartum if you are not breastfeeding. If you breastfeed, especially with exclusive breastfeeding, you can avoid childbirth up to 6 months postpartum, and this method is called LAM (lactational amenorrhea). The reason is that breastfeeding activities exclusively encourage the release of certain hormones that work the same way as contraception. But basically after 6 months, even if a woman does not menstruate, whether she is breastfeeding or not, in fact she can get pregnant again.
In your case, with the distance from the last relationship that was over a year, of course you could get pregnant again. But we can't be certain of that just from the feeling. There must be minimal evidence in the form of a pregnancy test to be sure that you are indeed pregnant now. The reason is because there are no menstruation, nausea, changes in the breasts, abdominal cramps or other signs of pregnancy that are known to many people can occur by other medical conditions besides pregnancy, so it is not specific.
So the point is, once again, in all likelihood, you might just get pregnant. But to be sure, you must do a pregnancy test or check yourself to the obstetrician. And if you are over 35 years old and you feel you have enough children, maybe you can also discuss permanent contraception for future convenience. So, hopefully answering your question.
