Can I Take Birth Control Pills With ASI Booster Together?
Thank you for the question.
Please note, not all herbal products contain pure herbal components in it. Not infrequently, herbal claimed products are also added certain chemicals in it, which are not all safe for nursing mothers. It could also be, there are other ingredients in herbal products that you consume that have the potential to interact negatively with the KB you use. Therefore, before consuming any medicine or herbal product, it is advisable to always consult it to the doctor right ..
The smooth production of breast milk during breastfeeding is influenced by many factors, including the frequency of emptying the breast, mental condition of the mother, lifestyle, consumption of certain drugs (including birth control), nutritional intake, and so on. The choice of family planning while breastfeeding must not be arbitrary. This must be done with the guidance of a doctor or obstetrician. Because, some types of birth control, especially those containing synthetic estrogen in it (such as combined birth control pills or injections 1 month) have the risk of inhibiting your milk production later. In addition to choosing the right KB, so that the production of ASI is abundant, it is also advisable to take the following steps:
Regularly breastfeed your baby every 2-3 hours
Also regularly milk your milk when not being breastfed
Improve your baby's attachment when breastfeeding, also choose the most comfortable breastfeeding position
Build positive thoughts, calm down, don't be sad or worry too much
Get enough rest
Reduce tiring physical activity
Drink more, eat also a variety of balanced nutritious foods, especially those containing lots of water, seeds, nuts, and dark green leafy vegetables (for example katuk leaf vegetable)
Do not carelessly take drugs, supplements, herbs, or any herbal product without consulting a doctor first
If the steps above have not been successful in helping to expedite your milk, instead of consuming any herbal product, you should immediately check with your doctor or the nearest lactation counselor to find the best solution.
I hope this helps.
