The Cause Has Not Been Menstruating For 19 Months And Became A Nursing Mother?
Hello …! Good night … I am a mother of 24 years old with a toddler aged 2 years 3 months I want to ask … already almost 19 months I haven’t menstruated too … after giving birth I gave an exclusive breast milk for my baby … until the age x 2 years old and 3blan has been weaned, but why I haven’t menstruated yet, please answer
Good evening, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. The activity of giving exclusive breastfeeding can indeed act as a natural contraceptive, because when breastfeeding there are certain hormones that have an effect on preventing pregnancy, and to keep the levels stable in the blood, it is required to give exclusive breastfeeding. During this method, the mother will not experience menstruation.
But this method is usually only valid for 6 months, because after 6 months, the child begins to be introduced to MPASI and because it is no longer balanced with hormone levels in his blood, this method is no longer effective. So in your case you have to think about other possibilities, moreover it turns out that even after you stop breastfeeding, you still haven't menstruated.
Other conditions that can occur include thyroid hormone imbalance and female hormonal imbalance due to various causes, the impact of drug consumption, the impact of using hormonal contraception, or bad lifestyle. To find out which best represents your condition, check with your obstetrician. The doctor will determine later, what treatment is best for you from the results of the examination.
Meanwhile, all you need to do is maintain a healthy lifestyle by taking regular breaks, avoiding smoking and pollution, increasing consumption of nutrients such as vegetables and fruit, managing stress well, meeting your fluid needs, maintaining ideal body weight, and seeing a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
