No Menstruation For One Year After Giving Birth?
I want to ask after giving birth I haven’t menstruated at all, I already want one year, how about that? The first 4 months, I didn’t have KB, then I injected 3 months and then I came here to the pill.
Hello Istiqomah, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Basically there is no exact time when a period will occur again after giving birth, because this also affects whether you give exclusive breastfeeding or not to your baby. In general, if you do not give milk to your baby at all, menstruation will usually occur within 5-8 weeks postpartum. However, if you give exclusive breastfeeding to your baby, then maybe you will not experience menstruation until finally the frequency of breastfeeding is reduced.
In addition, seeing that you have used injectable birth control every 3 months, it can also have side effects without menstruation, and it takes several months to 1 year to restore hormonal changes for menstruation and fertility after injection of the hormone. Regarding the use of birth control pills themselves, it also depends on the type of pills used, if used are birth control pills that are safe to use during breastfeeding, then generally these pills will also have the same side effects as the use of 3-month injection contraception, which is likely the occurrence of menstruation is quite high.
If you want to get your period back quickly, it is highly recommended that you consult further with your obstetrician to help find a solution for you, do not change the method of birth control without consideration and also a clear recommendation from the doctor, because each birth control method has side effects. individually and have their own criteria to be met before finally the KB method is used. For the time being keep breastfeeding your baby, continue to use your birth control pills for a while until there is further advice from your doctor, and avoid having sex for a while.
I hope this helps.
