Is Pregnancy Can Occur For 7 Months Before Menstruation
Tonight doc, I want to ask now my baby is 7 months old. And during that time I have not menstruated. today I was in touch and my husband accidentally ejaculated. I breastfeed my baby exclusively dock. All this time, my husband always ejaculated outside. Can this cause a dock pregnancy?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, your fertility can return even before you experience menstruation and sexual intercourse with penetration (even without ejaculation) still carries the risk of pregnancy because prejaculate fluid can also contain live sperm. Therefore, if indeed you and your husband do not want to have a pregnancy, you are still advised to use contraception after childbirth (before or immediately after the postpartum period ends). Exclusive breastfeeding can indeed cause delays in female fertility, but its effectiveness is low and after the baby is no longer exclusively breastfed (when the baby is 6 months old and has begun to be given complementary feeding), then the contraceptive effect of breastfeeding can be said to have disappeared.
You should immediately do a pregnancy check with a test pack to ensure that you are not currently pregnant. If the results are indeed negative, immediately take emergency contraceptive pills to prevent pregnancy (the faster the consumption the higher the effectiveness). You can also do a pregnancy check in 2 weeks to make sure that your sexual relations today do not cause pregnancy. When doing a pregnancy test with a test pack, check using the first urine in the morning to get more accurate results. A pregnancy check is not necessary if you are having menstruation.
While waiting for the results of your pregnancy examination, you are advised to always use a condom during sexual intercourse. If later the results of your pregnancy test are negative, consult immediately with a midwife or obstetrician for the use of permanent contraception (birth control pills, birth control, implants, or IUD). If you don't want to use the contraceptive method, always use a condom when you have sex.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
