Thank you for the question. After giving birth, women will enter the puerperium, which is a period in which a woman's body will return to its pre-pregnancy state. During this time will come out the rest of the pregnancy fluid or what is called lochia. These lochia will continue to decrease in number and will become lighter in color over time. Postpartum time usually takes up to 6 weeks or 40 days in a normal birth process and is shorter in a caesarean section.
You can use birth control to prevent pregnancy. However, it's best to discuss what contraception is suitable for you, please consult with an obstetrics and gynecologist first. Doctors need to know your menstrual history, your medical history, and your desire to have children in the future. This information is very necessary to determine whether you can use hormonal contraceptives and then determine which contraceptive method is suitable for you. If you have certain medical conditions, you can only use certain forms of contraception.
