The Distance To Get Pregnant Again After A Cesarean Delivery?
Good morning, I want to ask my wife just after the first pregnancy for 21 months and then she injected the KB, the intention is to get pregnant again, but people say that she doesn’t need to, whereas she injected the KB 3 months late 1 week, what’s the solution ????
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
After undergoing a cesarean section, it is advisable to give a gap between the initial pregnancy and subsequent pregnancies for at least 2 years. With this time span, it is hoped that the uterus and other reproductive organs have fully recovered, so that your wife will be better equipped to conceive a new fetus, without the risk of dangerous complications.
Delaying the KB injection for more than 24 hours can indeed reduce the effectiveness of the KB injection so that the potential for pregnancy will be greater. However, most women who have used 3-month injectable birth control generally will not necessarily return to fertility even though injecting birth control has stopped being used. Therefore, if your wife is experiencing signs of pregnancy, it is better not to draw conclusions too early. First check with your doctor or obstetrician to be clear, whether she is pregnant, or not.
If it turns out she is not pregnant, while waiting for the right time to get pregnant again, you and your wife can use other methods of contraception, such as condoms or diaphragms. It could also, you and your wife consult with your doctor so that other contraceptive methods are chosen more appropriate.
However, if it turns out she was pregnant, in fact this was not always dangerous. To minimize and detect early risks of complications in pregnancy and post-copy due to the distance between pregnancies that are too close, accompany your wife to always check her pregnancy to a gynecologist.
I hope this helps.
