Hello, Rifa Korasawari Pardede, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Generally, after giving birth, women will get their menstruation again after the postpartum period ends or approximately 40 days after giving birth. However, there are some conditions that prevent women from menstruating after giving birth, for example due to breastfeeding. Breastfeeding can make a woman stop menstruating because while breastfeeding the hormone prolactin levels will be high and suppress the sex hormone that functions in menstruation. Breastfeeding is often used as a natural contraceptive method called MAL (Lactation Amenorrhoea Method). The effectiveness of MAL is quite large (98%) in preventing pregnancy, provided that:


1. Never had a period since giving birth


2. Within the exclusive breastfeeding period (6 months)


3. The baby is exclusively breastfed (not eating / drinking other than breast milk) so that the mother breastfeeds regularly


If you are in doubt, you can use a condom every time you have sex, or consult your doctor about choosing a safe contraceptive method for your condition. The choice of contraceptive methods varies, and must be adjusted to the mother's health condition (whether it is in accordance with the indications and the contraception), the desire to delay pregnancy for how long, the possible side effects, and other considerations. Some contraceptive options are safe for breastfeeding mothers, for example, MAL, condoms, spiral contraceptives / IUDs, progesterone hormonal birth control (minipill / lactation pills), but still need to be checked directly to ensure the safety of giving them to you.


Here is an article about "contraceptive methods" that you can read to add information.


That's all, hopefully it's useful.


Greetings, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
