No Menstruation After The Puerperium And Not Breastfeeding, Is It Possible To Get Pregnant?
Good night! Doc I want to ask in October last year I gave birth to my first child and my child died in early January yesterday, but after childbirth until now I have not menstruated even though Sufah did not breastfeed yesterday I tried to test the results like a second line but vaguely unclear is it possible can get pregnant after childbirth and not menstruating first?
Thank you for the question.

No menstruation for some time is usually natural experienced by mothers who gave birth due to hormonal conditions that have not been balanced as before pregnancy. The process of breastfeeding, the use of certain contraceptives, stress (including the result of losing a loved one), fatigue, weight that has not returned to an ideal, unhealthy eating patterns, lack of exercise, and many other other factors can also trigger this condition. If it is true that your childbirth is over, then it is not impossible that the delay in your period is happening because you are pregnant again. So, do not have to wait until menstruation arrives first.
Generally, a positive testpack result does indicate pregnancy. However, the condition of hormones that have not been balanced after delivery can also contribute to making the testpack results inaccurate. Therefore, given that your testpack results are not clear (vague), you should repeat them at least 3-7 days later. Or it could be, you check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician to make a more accurate evaluation, namely through a blood test or ultrasound.
In the meantime, for menstruation to return smoothly, it is recommended that you get more rest, exercise regularly, return your body weight to be more ideal, be more diligent in eating fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants, do not be too sad or excessive anxiety, and do not just consume drugs or carelessly consume drugs or feasting without consulting a doctor first.
Hope this helps ...
