Hi Xandra,

Thanks for the question. Lactational amenorrhea method (LAM) or lactational amenorrhea method is one of the contraceptive methods that can be used by breastfeeding mothers. This method can be used temporarily after delivery. Breastfeeding your baby exclusively triggers the production of a hormone that functions to maintain milk production (the hormone prolactin). This hormone can suppress the level of the hormone estrogen so that it inhibits the release of eggs / ovulation and pregnancy can be prevented. This method can only work if:

your baby is under 6 months of age You have not had a period You are exclusively breastfeeding, i.e. you give breast milk at least every 4 hours during the day and every 6 hours at night. The baby's sucking on the breast when breastfeeding stimulates the production of the hormone prolactin. Expressing breast milk is not as effective as sucking a baby on your breast, so expressing breast milk is not recommended because this method can reduce the effectiveness of this method. If you breastfeed your baby regularly, then your milk production will be maintained. MAL is a method that can be used on a limited basis. Thus, if you are menstruating, your baby is more than 6 months old, or you cannot exclusively breastfeed, then you should use another contraceptive method. Please consult with your obstetrician and gynecologist.

I hope this helps.
