Menstrual Patterns Are Disrupted After Giving Birth 11 Months Ago?
I gave birth 11 months ago. At the time of 9 months in December I had my period and the day was pretty much 7 days. After that in January I did not menstruate until now. I have tested many times and the results are always negative. Is this normal? Tks
Thank you for your question.
Basically after giving birth, the mother will experience the puerperal process for 40-60 days and after that will experience changes in the menstrual cycle, because there are hormonal changes in the body when the mother is breastfeeding.
When breastfeeding will increase the hormone pregesterone and HCG which is a hormone that can be used by birth control. Therefore breastfeeding is one of the natural contraceptives, and the more frequent breastfeeding will increase the hormone.
Stress is also one of the things that can cause disrupted menstrual patterns. Diseases of the thyroid gland can also cause changes in the menstrual cycle. Based on the complaint you mentioned, it leads to an increase in hormones due to breastfeeding and that is very normal.
However, if you do not experience menstruation when you stop breastfeeding, then immediately check with yourself to the nearest obstetrician. To be able to do supporting examinations such as ultrasound.
