Causes Of Late Menstruation After Childbirth And Testpek Results Are Still Negative?
Hi my name is Dian, I am a breastfeeding mother from a baby of 8 months. Incidentally, I haven’t used FP because I’m still confused about what FP should I use? This month I experienced a menstrual delay of ± 1 week, the first day of my last menstrual period was April 14, the date it ended was between 22-23 (because the 23rd still came out a little brown). Usually I will have my period on the 14th or 15th of the following month. 1 week I always experience milky white discharge. Because I was worried about getting pregnant, I took a test pack but the results were negative. My question is still fair what I’m experiencing? Or maybe I am pregnant but it was not detected? Please answer yes. R nThank you
Your complaint is the delay in menstruation. When did you start menstruating after giving birth? Has it been once or has it been several times? Breastfeeding mothers sometimes experience irregular menstrual cycles due to hormonal changes in their bodies. Generally, menstrual cycles will become more regular over time.
Apart from breastfeeding, delayed menstruation can also be caused by several other factors such as pregnancy, psychological stress, anxiety, tension, physical fatigue, obesity, drastic weight loss, cysts, polycystic ovary syndrome, thyroid disease, hormonal instability, chronic disease, and side effects of contraceptives.
For now, try to do a retestpack at least 1-2 weeks after the first testpack. Make sure you do the testpack correctly and if necessary, use several brands of testpack. If the result is still negative, it is likely that you are not pregnant and the delay in your period is due to something else as above. If your period is more than 3 months late and you are also not pregnant, you should check with your obstetrician directly so that further tests can be done to determine the cause so that you can be given more appropriate treatment.
While waiting to see the doctor, you can do the following tips:
Get used to a healthy lifestyle
Keep the body from getting tired
Maintain ideal body weight
Get regular exercise
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Drink a lot of water
If you don't want to get pregnant yet, consider using contraception. For a while while waiting for menstruation, her husband can use a condom first. After you menstruate or it is confirmed that you are not pregnant, you can use other contraceptives.
