Hello, Ayu Mutiasari, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Determining the fertile period after giving birth is difficult because in some people there can still be a hormonal imbalance after giving birth. In some people there can be changes in the menstrual cycle because the condition of the reproductive organs has not completely recovered and the hormonal balance has not returned. After giving birth, women generally experience menstruation again within 3 months after the postpartum period ends. If you do not want to plan a pregnancy, you should use contraception.
The characteristics of the fertile period to note:
1. Cervical/cervical mucus becomes clearer, smoother, like egg white, can be stretched like thread
2. Changes in basal body temperature. During ovulation, body temperature increases by 0.4-1 degrees Celsius.
3. During the fertile period, the cervix is more open, soft, and wet. Can be checked by inserting a clean index finger into the vagina, but it takes practice to do it
If the menstrual cycle has returned, then the fertile period can be calculated. However, if you have not returned for more than 3 months, consult your obstetrician immediately. The following efforts can be made to help restore hormonal balance:
1. Control stress
2. do not –
3. Eat nutritious food
Here's how to calculate the fertile period.
That's it, I hope it's useful.
