Hello Mrs. Ratna.
Thank you for the question.
The original birth control pill that you are using is a combination birth control pill. Combined birth control pills are a commonly used pill form of homonal contraception. The combination referred to here is a combination of the synthesis of the two female reproductive hormones, namely estrogen and progesterone. The way combination birth control pills work is by:
suppressing the release of eggs (ovulation) by the ovaries interferes with muscle growth in the uterus, thus preventing the pregnancy process from thickening the cervical mucus so that it is difficult for sperm to enter the uterus. Side effects of combination birth control pills are:
delayed menstrual bleeding spotting in the first 3 months of use mood changes headache and migraine tenderness in the breast nausea vomiting decreased desire If you experience delayed menstruation while using the combined birth control pill, it is advisable to check your pregnancy status. In addition, delayed menstruation can also be caused by:
psychological stress is suffering from certain diseases use of drugs eating disorders obesity weight loss drastically In your case, you are already menstruating. So you can say you are not experiencing pregnancy. The choice of contraceptive method or the choice of birth control pills is the will of the mother. However, this should be consulted with a doctor first.
A mother is not recommended to use lactation birth control pills if she experiences the following:
women who are pregnant women who are breastfeeding women who have blood clots. women who have a history of breast cancer. women with liver disease, infections, and tumors. That's my explanation, hopefully it can answer the question.
