TT And Family Planning Injections After Marriage?
Hello . Good evening … r nDok. I want to ask whether it is permissible for TT injection after marriage? But I just had the birth control injection one week ago. The midwife said wait one week after the birth control injection. How to explain further. R nBecause the midwife says it’s for body defense.
From your information, giving the TT vaccine is a series of government programs to improve the health status of mothers and children from the risk of tetanus infection. Therefore, delaying TT injections after marriage is basically not prohibited, but you run the risk of forgetting and not taking TT injections against the risk of further tetanus infection.
Therefore, even if you are planning to have a TT injection after marriage, then you can commit to doing this TT injection as scheduled. By following the TT injection schedule, it is hoped that you can be protected from the risk of tetanus infection.
Even though you have received a tetanus shot at the age of infancy and school, a booster or addition of a tetanus shot can be done at school age and strengthened at the time of marriage. This is related to how long the tetanus vaccine has been protected. If in the past 10 years you have not received a TT injection, it is best if a TT injection can be scheduled. The current TT injection will protect your body from the risk of tetanus infection during pregnancy and childbirth.
Next, discuss with your doctor at the health center or hospital the planned TT injection program.
That is the information we can convey, read also the discussion.
