KB Is Suitable For Breastfeeding Mothers?
Hello, I want to ask what birth control is suitable for mothers who are breastfeeding and do not cause facial spots. Previously my wife used KB for 3 months and when she did the KB injection was recommended by her midwife for 1 month injection only. because 3-month KB has effects such as spots on the face, no menstruation, and there is no enthusiasm for husband and wife relations. while KB 1 month my wife’s menstruation never stopped … please advise.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. First, you need to know how old your baby is. If it's still under 6 months, by breastfeeding exclusively, she can get the effect of delaying pregnancy using a method called LAM or lactational amenorrhea. By regularly breastfeeding your child, your wife can be protected from pregnancy until the baby reaches the age of 6 months.
But if it's more than that, then other contraception must be considered. If you do not want to have an impact in the form of spots, you should look for one that does not contain hormones, and the method is to install an IUD, or with a condom, either a female condom or a male condom. Apart from this method there is also a calendar method or by removing the penis before ejaculation, but its effectiveness tends to be low.
To be sure, each method has advantages and disadvantages of each. The problem is, with this one-way communication pattern it is difficult to be able to determine which is really suitable for your wife. Because although it does not cause spots, condoms may also have their own shortcomings that are not liked by your wife. Our advice, to be able to find what method is right for your wife, consult your obstetrician. Because by meeting in person, there can be clearer interactions and minimize misunderstandings, so we can be sure the decision taken is a joint decision from you and your wife. Then with a doctor's supervision, there might be hormonal contraceptive methods that can still be tried like certain types of birth control pills.
What is clear, if your wife's condition is not fit, easily tired and the like, you should not think about sexual relations first, and focus more on your wife's personal health. Try not to get sick, and reduce milk production. Help him in meeting his nutritional needs every day, and help him to be able to rest as much as possible. So, hopefully answering your question.
