Is It Safe To Delay Menstruation Medication Consumed By Nursing Mothers?
good afternoon..my mother is nursing a 7 month baby..next month i will go umroh … my departure date coincides with the menstrual schedule. May I take primolut medicine ??? I have a history of FAM surgery 10 years ago.
Hello Mrs. Yulianti, thank you for consulting us at HealthReplies.com.
Primolut is a drug which contains a compound called Noresthisterone or synthetic from the hormone progesterone which functions in treating primary and secondary amenorrhoea, PMS, treating dysfunctional bleeding, delaying menstruation or menstruation, and endometriosis.
Generally, the use of the drug is planned in the agenda of the holy ground travel so that the sacred ground can perform worship as much as possible in accordance with expectations. This drug should be taken at least 1 week or a maximum of three days before the estimated day of your next menstruation until you finish your pilgrimage. And the consumption of this drug should be limited to no more than 14 days because it can cause excessive menstrual bleeding. In its use when breastfeeding this is still controversial and it is not yet known whether there will be an effect on the baby whose mother is taking this drug, so our advice should you consult your doctor before actually using this drug to delay menstruation since you also have a history of FAM 10 years ago. In addition it is necessary to do a complete examination to avoid contraindications in someone who is prohibited from taking this drug as in:
pregnant and nursing mothers
have a history of diabetes
the presence of disturbances in a heavy heart
and a history of vascular disease
Thus our explanation, hopefully useful.
