Body Weight Continues To Decrease After Giving Birth?
Hy … I want to ask, why after I gave birth to my first child BB continued to decline. Every month sometimes down 2-3 kg. And I haven’t had menstruation until my child is 6 months old. My normal body weight is 52 53 kg, but now it is 43 kg. Please answer yes .. (I’m a 25-year-old mother) Thank you ..
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Weight loss can occur due to various causes, regardless of whether you have just given birth or not. Among the possible causes are:
Stress, a lot of thoughts and mental stress Lack of rest, too much activity Decreased appetite and reduced frequency of eating Excessive thyroid hormones Chronic or long-lasting illnesses such as diabetes Bacterial or viral infections such as tuberculosis
In your case, because there is no other information and indeed the condition of childbirth should not be related to weight loss, our suspicion is still more on lifestyle factors such as irregular eating, physical and mental burdens in caring for children, lack of rest, which is this can also affect irregular periods. In addition, if you have been giving exclusive breastfeeding to your child, the condition of menstruation is very reasonable because exclusive breastfeeding can indeed be a natural contraception for new mothers.
Even so, once again this is only conjecture. We do not know your full medical history to be able to ensure that it is true that the condition you are experiencing. Our advice, check your condition with a general practitioner in advance to dig in-depth history and physical examination and support, then from there can be determined whether you can be treated immediately or need the help of specialists such as internal medicine, obstetricians or other specialists.
Meanwhile, what is clearly important for you is to maintain a healthy lifestyle by staying away from cigarette smoke, regular sleep, managing a balanced work schedule and rest, eating nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruits as well as high-protein foods such as eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt , beef and chicken breasts, sports according to abilities such as swimming and jogging, avoiding stress, and increasing the portion of food. So, hopefully answering your question.
