Hello Nurfadjria, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Exclusive breastfeeding or lactational amenorrhea (LAM) can significantly reduce your chances of getting pregnant again during the first six months. But to make sure not to get pregnant while breastfeeding, it is advisable to choose the right contraception.
If you exclusively breastfeed your baby, you can use birth control after the baby is six weeks old. However, if you do not exclusively breastfeed, you can use contraception when the baby is three weeks old.
All choices of contraceptive methods that can be used by breastfeeding mothers, whether in the form of injections, implants, taking pills, or IUDs, in principle, should only contain progestins, without estrogen, because they can inhibit your milk production. The following choices of contraceptive methods are recommended for nursing mothers:
Progestin-only birth control pills, without estrogen Progestin contraceptive injections Hormonal implants Intra-Uterine Device (IUD) or spiral If you are not comfortable with KB injections, and cannot install a spiral, you can also use condoms or spermicides (spermicides). However, whatever the choice method of contraception, you should consult with your obstetrician and gynecologist in order to know the benefits and side effects of each method.
