The Effect Of Family Planning On Baby’s Weight?
Good morning, I want to ask, does the 3-month injection KB affect the baby’s weight? thank you
Hi Silvi Fitria.. Thank you for the questions given.
The choice of contraception is important and must be based on an agreement between you and your husband and you need to consider your circumstances, such as: do you still want to have more children, do you want to adjust the age gap of the children, are you breastfeeding, are there certain diseases, compliance? Mother.
Injectable family planning can be divided into 1 month injection and 3 month injection. The advantages of the 3-month injection are: safe for breastfeeding mothers, effective and practical when compared to birth control pills, can reduce the risk of ovarian cancer and uterine cancer. But it has side effects such as: headaches, weight gain, takes time to restore fertility after taking birth control, irregular menstruation, and does not protect against the possibility of sexually transmitted infections.
If you are currently breastfeeding a baby, safe family planning for breastfeeding mothers is: IUD, 3-month injection, implant, or condom. If you use this KB and are breastfeeding, it will not affect the baby's weight because milk production is not affected.
If you don't want to use hormonal birth control then you can consider using an IUD. The IUD can be used long-term, does not increase weight, does not affect hormones, and fertility can return as soon as the IUD is removed.
You can consult with your doctor regarding the selection of contraception according to your current condition.
