Prolonged Breast Pain?
Hello, I want to ask. Why does the breast feel painful for more than 1 month, after using 1 month injection, is that part of the effect of birth control or not? Please answer, thanks .. !!
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The only hormonal birth control device is birth control pills or birth control, containing synthetic hormones that are like female hormones in humans. Due to the influence of active ingredients in this KB device, the body of the KB acceptor will respond by the influence of KB device on the uterine lining so as to prevent pregnancy and also affect other body tissue systems, both blood vessels, heart, digestion and also the breast.
In women, female hormones will affect the breast tissue so that the breasts will look tight and contain and help the growth of breasts during adolescent / puberty. Likewise with the KB device that you use, where this KB injection contains synthetic hormones that also affect breast tissue, so complaints of pain in the breast can be experienced especially in the early stages of using KB injections. However, after several months of use of KB injections, these complaints can usually be reduced or not felt.
Some of the other side effects of using a 1-month KB injection are:
1. menstrual cycle disorders in some KB acceptors
2. menstrual pain
3. breast pain
4. weight gain
5. anxiety or worry
6. blood disorders
If you feel complaints and side effects that persist in 2-3 menstrual cycles or 2-3 times a family planning injection, then you should consult with your obstetrician regarding this complaint and related to the birth control method that is suitable for you.
The doctor will conduct an interview related to the course of this complaint, then, the doctor will continue the physical examination and supporting examinations such as breast ultrasound or blood tests. The results of the examination will provide information whether this complaint is related to side effects of birth control or other medical conditions, such as due to an infection in the breast tissue or due to a benign tumor that affects pain complaints. Further care and treatment will be provided according to the results of the examination, such as changing the birth control method for you.
for now, you should do a few things, like:
1. Avoid using BeHa that is too tight
2. apply warm water compresses on the pain area
3. avoid pressing or foreplay too aggressively or pressing too much on the breast when having sex with your husband
Thus the info we can convey.
