Having Intercourse Without Birth Control In Nursing Mothers Can You Get Pregnant?
, we have a 5 month old child. When giving birth with a cesarean. After entering this 5-month-old child, we sometimes get in touch, without any birth control, other than natural birth control. What I’m asking is whether my wife (can) get pregnant, if I forget (go out inside or outside) during intercourse? While my wife is also nursing, almost every hour to breastfeed.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When breastfeeding, the body will produce a hormone that can suppress the production of hormones that regulate the release of eggs. Therefore, breastfeeding can indeed be one form of natural birth control. However, the effectiveness of natural birth control by breastfeeding will diminish as your baby's age increases, which also indirectly influences the breastfeeding intensity. Therefore, this natural birth control cannot be used as the only method of pregnancy prevention. If you and your partner really want to postpone pregnancy again, you both need to consult directly with your doctor about additional contraceptive methods that need to be used.
After the postpartum period, a woman can immediately return to fertile. The potential for a woman to get pregnant again after childbirth can vary depending on many factors, not only the intensity of breastfeeding her milk, but also her hormonal condition, medications consumed, history of illness, and so on. No menstruation after giving birth does not necessarily ensure that your wife is not fertile again.
If you view from the information you convey, where you and your wife often have sex with ejaculation inside without any contraceptive protection, obviously your wife has the potential to become pregnant. If you find signs of pregnancy with him, for example not coming menstruation, nausea, dizziness, enlarged abdomen, mood swings, weakness, fatigue, frequent urination, decreased milk production, and so on, better, try to get him to do a testpack. It could also, you check it directly to the doctor or obstetrician to make a more accurate examination for example USG.
