The Possibility Of Pregnancy During Late Menstruation?
Tonight. I am Alif. I want to ask, my wife is now 9 days late menstruation and until now has not menstruated. My wife is not interested, and my child is also only 5 months old. What if late menstruation until 9 days can be declared pregnant ? And if my child is only 5 months old, if before my wife had a caesare, if until I get pregnant again is it safe for my wife’s health? Please answer my question. Thank you.
Hello Alif, Thank you for the question.
The possibility of pregnancy remains if you and your wife have sex without contraception. Therefore, if your wife is late for menstruation you should immediately do a testpack to detect pregnancy. If you don't do a testpack, of course you can't know whether your wife is pregnant or not. Testpack is useful for detecting the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone that is formed when a woman is pregnant. If the testpack results are positive (showing two red lines), then your wife is almost certain to be pregnant. With these results, your wife is advised to immediately consult an obstetrician for an ultrasound examination to confirm pregnancy. If it is proven to be pregnant and your wife had a previous Caesarean section, you should discuss it again with your obstetrician regarding further treatment. In general, after undergoing a Caesarean section, the fastest time a woman can get pregnant again is 18 months.
If the testpack results are negative, your wife can repeat the testpack 3-5 days later to confirm the results. If it is still negative after being repeated, then it can only be said that your wife is not pregnant and her menstrual delays may be due to hormonal disorders such as fatigue, stress, drastic weight changes. What your wife can do is stay well rested, manage stress well, avoid a strict diet, and maintain ideal body weight. Another thing that is not less important is to choose contraception that is suitable for your wife to postpone pregnancy.
Hopefully this information helps you.
