Contraceptive Pill To Hold Menstruation Before Umrah?
Good night, doctor. I am Ananda, 29 years old, going to perform the pilgrimage on January 21-31, 2019 and my menstrual schedule the previous month on November 23, 2018 and December 24, 2018. I have also been taking the Lactation Andalan Pill for 1 year because I am still breastfeeding. What I want to ask: 1. Can I take menstrual medicine so that my pilgrimage can go according to expectations? 2. What menstrual barrier medicine should I take with my breastfeeding condition? (When the baby is not taken) 3. When can I start taking the medication and when will it end? 4. Are the same menstrual prescription drugs given between patients? Thank you for the doctor’s answer. Good night
The mainstay of lactation birth control pills contains 0.5 mg linesterol (similar to the hormone progesterone), but in higher doses it can also be used to hold menstruation. High doses of progesterone can prevent ovulation, maintain the thickness of the uterus, and maintain the uterine wall so as not to shed (menstruation). High-dose forms of progesterone are drugs that can be obtained by prescription from a doctor. This drug is usually taken 2-3 days before the next menstrual date and taken every day in a row until a maximum of 20 days of consumption. After being stopped, within 2 days later menstruation will usually begin and usually more blood volume. This progesterone pill should not be taken by women who have a history of blood vessel blockage, liver disorders, abnormal vaginal bleeding that has not been diagnosed by a doctor, breast cancer, cervical cancer, joint use with seizure medications, tuberculosis drugs. Before starting the drug, patients should still check with a general practitioner or obstetrician.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
