Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. With the age of 40 years, especially with the number of children who have reached 4 people, medically the recommendation is to use contraception, because if you get pregnant again, the risk will be higher for the pregnancy which leads to unexpected conditions.
Regarding the choice of contraception, in fact the most recommended is surgery, both to close your reproductive tract or your husband. This is important because there should be no plans to have more children, so permanent contraception is done. Side effects toward menstrual disorders, weight gain, or the potential for negligence were minimal or nonexistent, because in contrast to the use of birth control injections, birth control pills and some IUDs, no hormones are inserted into the body.
However, if for one reason or another you prefer to use an IUD or family planning injection, check with your obstetrician to be sure in advance whether your menstrual blood complaints are indeed related or not to the choice of contraception you are using. If it is related, it could be that you are not suitable and should replace. If unrelated, other possibilities will be sought such as the presence of cysts, thyroid hormone imbalance, the influence of lifestyle, or other conditions. The handling that you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Once again we want to remind, that the best recommendation is to use permanent methods of contraception through surgery, whether done by you, your husband, or both. If you still do not understand this method, you may first ask your obstetrician while checking yourself. So, hopefully answering your question.
