Hello Mother Salwa, thank you for your question
After giving birth, it is important to think about the right contraception in order to keep a distance from future pregnancies. Recommendations for a good contraceptive for breastfeeding mothers are those that do not contain estrogen. Here are a few options:
3 months contraceptive injection progestin contraceptive IUD implant / implant, both hormonal and non-hormonal The estrogen component in contraceptives has the potential to inhibit the production of breast milk (ASI). Therefore, during the first six months after delivery it is best to avoid using combined contraceptives (progesterone and estrogen).
The 1 month contraceptive injection includes contraception that contains both progesterone and estrogen. As for some of the side effects that can be caused:
abnormal bleeding occurs, breast pain, dizziness or headache. If the bleeding occurs more than 7 days with a large volume, it is better if you see a gynecologist directly. The doctor will evaluate the source of bleeding whether it is due to problems with the reproductive organs after delivery or side effects of using contraception. For this reason, the doctor will perform a pelvic examination and ultrasound, as well as blood tests if complications are suspected due to excessive bleeding, namely anemia (lack of red blood cells). If it is proven that it is due to contraception, you should choose another method of contraception, especially those recommended for breastfeeding mothers.
While waiting for the doctor's examination, make sure to keep your feminine area clean by changing the pads every 3-4 hours. In addition, pay attention to the color of the bleeding, as well as the number of changes to pads. It is important that this information be conveyed to the doctor during the medical history interview.
Hope this information is useful
