Hormonal Birth Control That Is Safe For Use By Nursing Mothers?
Hello I am a diamond of 23 years, when yesterday my baby was 5 months old I used a 3-month injection syringe but after that my milk was dragged at first and my milk was flooded and at that moment I menstruated for 3 months without pausing while using the KB and my BB was getting declining ASI is not there, the solution is what is good for me to use now?
Hello Intan Komala Putri,
Hormonal birth control that is safe for use by nursing mothers is a birth control that contains the hormone progesterone only. KB combination containing the hormone estrogen + progesterone can interfere with milk production. 3-month injection KB only contains the hormone progesterone, it should not interfere with milk production. However, the use of 3-month injectable birth control can cause menstrual disorders or bleeding from the vagina outside the menstrual cycle.
Some birth control options that do not contain estrogen such as mini pills, implants, and hormonal contraceptives in the uterus (IUD) all contain progesterone. So it still might cause side effects like you experience when using 3-month injection KB. The most likely choice is to use a non hormonal birth control method such as the following:
Non hormonal IUD, for example copper T
Besides breastfeeding can also be a method of contraception. However, mothers must continue to breastfeed routinely, every 2-3 hours every day which is difficult to practice for working mothers. This lactation method is only effective at least until the baby is 6 months old. If the mother has menstruated, then this method is no longer useful.
Consult again about choosing the most appropriate contraceptive method for your condition with an obstetrician. Also make sure there are no other abnormalities other than the use of injectable birth control that causes prolonged menstruation as you experience. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
