Because my body after KB became thin … Please answer right ..
Wa alaikumsalam Rizka, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. There are various types of contraception, and its distribution can be based on various things, one of which is to divide which contraceptives work which contains hormones and which do not. Among contraceptives that contain hormones are birth control injections, birth control pills, implants / implants and some types of IUDs.
For hormonal contraception, because it works to disrupt the body's hormonal balance to avoid meeting the egg and sperm cells, everything that is also related to hormones besides fertility is also affected by this method, such as weight, menstrual cycles, feelings and skin conditions.
So indeed, irregular menstrual conditions, both in the form of being very frequent, or even very rare, are a condition that is often encountered in users of family planning injections as one of the side effects. But of course, if the side effects are outside the tolerance limit, such as making you become thinner, less blood, weakness, etc., it means you are not fit to use the contraceptive method.
In addition, it is actually not impossible that what you experience is completely outside the influence of the contraceptive method, but other medical conditions such as the presence of cysts in the ovaries, thyroid hormone disorders, lifestyle and so forth. Therefore to be able to ascertain what you are actually experiencing, our advice should you check with your obstetrician. Your obstetrician will do a complete history of yourself, including habits and other symptoms that may arise, do a physical examination and may be a support to be able to narrow the possibility. Handling will depend on the results of this examination, including if it turns out you need to change the method of contraception.
Meanwhile, what is important for you is to live a healthy lifestyle by avoiding cigarette smoke and stress, resting regularly, maintaining an ideal body weight, eating healthy and nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit, and exercising according to your ability. So, hopefully answering your question.
