Does 3 Months Injection Affect The Child?
Hello, I want to ask, does 3 months injection of injection affect children ?? Thank you in advance
Hello Tarti, thanks for the question.
KB injection is one type of contraception to delay pregnancy. This contraception contains the hormone progesterone which is similar to the hormone that is naturally released by the female body. This hormone will cause the egg cells are not released into the uterus, thicken the vaginal mucus, and thin the lining of the uterus so as to prevent fertilization and reduce the risk of pregnancy. Each contraceptive method has advantages and disadvantages, excess injection of 3-month KB include:
Relatively safe for nursing mothers
Can be used by women who cannot use contraceptives that contain estrogen
Do not interact with other drugs.
No need to bother remembering to take contraceptive pills every day.
No need to count first when having sex. Depending on the type, the injection can last up to 8-13 weeks.
If you want to stop, no need to bother having to see a doctor. Just stop using it.
Can reduce the risk of ovarian and uterine cancer.
The disadvantages are:
Irregular menstruation, headaches, weight gain, breast pain, bleeding, and others.
It can take up to a year after being stopped if you want to return to fertility.
Reducing bone density, but this will return to normal if the injection is stopped.
Does not provide protection against sexually transmitted diseases.
So, this 3-month KB injection does not affect the condition of children, including children who are breastfeeding. For mothers who inject family planning, it is better to keep on living a healthy lifestyle, eating nutritious food, exercising regularly, getting enough rest, adequate fluid needs, avoiding cigarettes and alcohol, and if there are complaints about body conditions related to family planning injection, you should consult a doctor.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
