Side Effects After 1 Month Of KB Injection?
Afternoon .. I want it again. I am breastfeeding at 13 months old, but yesterday I replaced the family members with 1 month from 3 months. Because complaints headaches and then grow a lot of pimples. But I thought about whether it would affect my baby. Because the midwife said no, no one said they could get the injection for 1 month. Then since I injected it, my baby was not feeling well, crying then. I have to go for a game. Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The choice of contraception when breastfeeding needs to be done properly by a doctor or obstetrician, not be arbitrary. The types of contraception that are considered safe for use by nursing mothers include:
Non-combination birth control pills (mini pills)
KB injections 3 months
KB implant (implant)
Hormonal or copper IUD
1 month injection contraception and combined birth control pills are not recommended for use by breastfeeding mothers because the content of the hormone estrogen in them can reduce your milk production. The lack of milk production is what can make your baby feel uncomfortable, and eventually cry more often.
We suggest that if you feel that it is not suitable to use contraception beforehand, you should not just randomly switch to another method of contraception. Check with your doctor or obstetrician first so that the most appropriate type of contraception is chosen, according to your age, body posture, history of illness, general health conditions, and future pregnancy plans again.
At this time, you should focus on making your baby more comfortable, how to:
Increase milk production, i.e. don't stress, drink lots, eat nutritious foods (especially types of beans), get enough rest, and frequently breastfeed and express your milk
Calm the baby when crying, for example by hugging or singing a hum that makes it comfortable
Create a comfortable environment around the baby
Give MPASI babies a healthy and nutritious diet regularly
Do not give babies any drugs
If the baby does not calm down with the above efforts, consult his doctor or pediatrician
Hope this helps ...
