Determination Of The Fertile Period After Childbirth?
Is it the fertile period after childbirth?
The term fertile period actually refers to the condition in which an egg is released into the uterus and is ready to be fertilized by a sperm cell. It is in this condition that sexual intercourse is most ideal so that the chances of getting pregnant are higher. This fertile period usually depends on a person's menstrual cycle because it is located between the previous menstrual cycle and the next. Meanwhile, the term childbirth itself refers to the recovery period for the reproductive organs that have undergone changes during pregnancy. Generally the postpartum period lasts up to 6 weeks after delivery. In principle there is no link between the postpartum period and the fertile period, because a person's fertile period generally returns long after the puerperium is over. A sign that a person will experience fertility again is the return of one's menstrual cycle. This condition can be prolonged by the breastfeeding process so that for those who want to postpone pregnancy, breastfeeding is one of the most effective birth control methods, although it still has to be combined with one other type of birth control, both hormonal, and conventional ones such as condoms, or intrauterine birth control. Further on this topic, we attach an article about the fertile period. May be useful.
