Not Menstruating After 9 Months Of Childbirth And Using Injection Kb For 3 Months?
Morning … I want to ask … as long as I gave birth to my second child who was barely 11 months old, I used injection contraceptives once every 3 months … said the midwife to make it safe for breastfeeding … the first time I injected it after 1 day had expired childbirth. r nI want to ask why until now I have not had a menstrual period r n What are the steps to prevent a period that does not come out for 10 months so that it can come out quickly r nAnd whether injection per 3 months is really safe for me and the baby me? r nThank you
Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The 3-month injection of contraceptives is a type of hormonal birth control that contains only the synthetic hormone progesterone. This type of family planning is safe for use by women who are breastfeeding their babies because they do not affect milk production. Although it is safe for use by breastfeeding women, this family planning often causes side effects in the form of menstrual cycle disorders. Women who use progesterone hormonal birth control alone often experience irregular menstruation, the bleeding becomes more or less, menstruation becomes longer or shorter, spots or bleeding occurs in the middle of the cycle, and often causes amenorrhea or absent menstruation.
This non-menstrual condition can occur in the first few months of using FP, but can also occur during the use of FP. Amenorrhoea conditions due to use of family planning are not at all dangerous. Menstrual blood does not accumulate in the uterus and will not cause any particular harm. Not menstruating is caused by the hormone given through birth control which inhibits the formation of the endometrial lining (the inner lining of the uterus which sheds and leaves as blood during menstruation). Since this lining is not formed, menstruation does not occur.
If you really feel annoyed because you don't have menstruation due to the use of birth control, you can consider using other types of birth control that are also safe for breastfeeding women. The recommended family planning is the IUD (IUD / intrauterine device). You can consult directly with your midwife or obstetrician about the most suitable birth control for your current condition.
