Birth Control Pills Are Gone But Menstruation Does Not Come?
Good night. I want to ask, after I gave birth to the first child my period became irregular, well, on 25 November I hb with my husband, and then I didn’t menstruate during that month, finally my husband suggested that I buy menstrual medicine. I bought m capsules and drank regularly, thank God on the 29th I had a normal menstruation (7 days) and the first day I immediately took the pill for the mainstay of lactation because my position was breastfeeding, well after that I routinely took the kb pill until it runs out (28 pills ) but why am I not menstruating until the end of this month? And also lately I like nausea and feel there is something strange around the belly of the belly button like that, especially on the left, am I pregnant? Whereas this month I didn’t have hb because my husband was out of town. Thanks before
Thank you for the question.
Irregular menstruation in mothers who have given birth is usually normal due to an unbalanced hormone condition. It could also be that your menstrual irregularities occur due to the effects of stress, breastfeeding, not yet ideal body weight, fatigue, side effects of drugs (including menstrual smoothing drugs), or also because there is a disease, such as ovarian cysts, hyperthyroidism, hyperprolactinemia, and so on.
If it is true after your last menstrual period that you have never had sexual intercourse again, chances are, menstrual disorders, nausea, and discomfort in your stomach do not appear related to pregnancy. Because, it is unlikely that women who are pregnant will experience menstruation as usual. However, some pregnant women may also experience implantation bleeding that almost resembles menstruation in early pregnancy.
Therefore, you should still check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician so that the cause of your condition can be identified and treated properly, yes. Urine, blood, or ultrasound examination can also be done by a doctor if deemed necessary.
In the meantime, so that your periods return smoothly, it's a good idea to diligently breastfeed your baby with adequate milk, regularly exercise every day, get enough rest, eat more fruits and vegetables, don't stress too much, maintain ideal body weight, and don't take medicine at random. (including menstrual-toning and delaying pregnancy) without direct advice from a doctor. If indeed you and your partner intend to postpone pregnancy, rather than indiscriminately taking menstrual fluids, consult a doctor to choose the right type of contraception according to the condition of both of you.
I hope this helps.
