Use 2 KB Methods At Once?
, I am an active breastfeeding mother, I want to ask, in 9 months I use 3-month KB injections and I have no menstruation at all. Can I still inject the 3-month KB at the same time I take birth control pills specifically for nursing mothers (for example, the mainstay of lactation)? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, for what purpose do you want to take birth control pills even though you have used 3 months of injection injections?
3-month injectable birth control and breastfeeding birth control pills both contain the synthetic hormone progesterone. This KB, if inserted into the body, can modify the balance of reproductive hormones in the body, so that ovulation is not expected (discharge of a mature egg from the ovary to the uterus), fertilization (fertilization between sperm cells and eggs), as well as implantation ( implantation of fertilization into the uterine wall). This KB does not contain the hormone estrogen so it does not affect milk production. Therefore, this type of KB is safe for use by nursing mothers.
The use of family planning should not be done haphazardly. Therefore, it is not appropriate if you want to use 2 types of birth control at once, without consulting a doctor first. Excessive use of family planning can cause the risk of side effects even greater. The risk of side effects that can occur is in the form of abnormal vaginal bleeding, obesity, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, allergies, and so on. If you feel disturbed by your menstruation not coming for months, then you need to know, that this is often normal due to the side effects of hormonal modification that is affected by injectable birth control for 3 months. So, don't worry about it ...
If you intend to switch from contraceptive method 1 to other contraceptives, you should first check yourself to the doctor or obstetrician huh ..
I hope this helps.
