Microgynon Or Cripsa To Stop Breastfeeding?
good morning, I want to ask
Hello Ardy, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The condition of excessive milk production or also known as hyperlactation is a condition in which the breasts produce more milk than the baby needs. There are many ways that can be tried to reduce milk production in women who are hyperlactated, ranging from natural methods (without certain drugs or supplements), the use of natural ingredients, to the use of drugs.
There are several types of drugs that can be used to reduce breast milk production, namely pseudoephedrine, estrogen (usually in the form of combined hormonal contraceptives such as Microgynon), cabergoline, or bromocriptine (Cripsa). Each of these drugs has its own side effects. In general, drug therapy can be started with pseudoephedrine or estrogen first. If it does not work to reduce milk production, antiprolactin drugs such as cabergoline or bromocriptine can be given.
In fact, both drugs can reduce breast milk production. Your wife can choose one of the two drugs and take it according to the doctor's instructions. Do not drink excessively if your wife still wants to breastfeed so that milk production does not completely stop.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
