Hello Lina Ayu, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Please note in advance, a diagnosis can only be made if it has been carried out anamnesis (question and answer) complete and directed, direct physical examination and support if necessary. However, based on Sister's information, the complaint can be caused by:
dyspepsia syndrome: a collection of symptoms of discomfort in the pit of the stomach, bloating, often belching, until a burning sensation in the pit of the stomach. Irregular eating patterns, a lot of consumption of foods containing gas, stress and emotions are triggering factors for this disease.
gastritis: inflammation of the gastric mucosa due to substances that are irritative to the gastric mucosa such as gastric acid itself, pain medication, steroid drugs, etc.
gallstones: generally cause symptoms of colic / sudden pain after eating, often feel sebah in the pit of the stomach and upper right abdomen, if the size of the stone is large enough that blockage can occur which makes the stools stool turn pale. Risk factors: women> 40 years old, fertile, obese, with high blood cholesterol.
Avoid eating in a hurry and in excessive amounts: eating too much and quickly makes the stomach work harder. Also avoid consuming spicy foods, coffee, tea and acids. Drink at least 2 liters of water per day, avoid lying down immediately / sleeping after eating: the risk of stomach acid rising into the esophagus and into the mouth and causing heartburn. Do not forget to manage stress well to minimize the risk of heartburn.
In the meantime, you can take antacids (can be bought freely at pharmacies) to reduce the feeling of heartburn and paracetamol to reduce headaches. Both types of drugs are safe for nursing mothers. If the complaint continues, it never hurts to see a doctor for a definitive diagnosis.
Regarding complaints of not having menstruation after 7 months after giving birth, based on data from WHO, on average a woman experiences menstruation ranging from 4-10 months after giving birth, but there are some who experience even 15-18 months after giving birth, especially if you give exclusive breastfeeding and continued after the baby reaches the age of 6 months.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful.
