Tonight doctor, I ria 3 months ago I gave birth. sayi provided breast milk for my baby, but was given a few milk days when he was hospitalized and so far I have not yet menstruated and not yet KB. Just now I went to the health center for family planning, the doctor said that it didn’t need birth control, (the condition was as I explained above), then I was given a condom and returned if the menstruation period for birth control returned. R nPlease explain r nThank you
Good afternoon Ria, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In short, it is true that exclusive breastfeeding can work as a natural contraceptive. The explanation is thus, this method is called lactational amenorrhea or LAM. This method can only be done while you are exclusively breastfeeding your baby so you can't use it at any time like other artificial contraceptives.
To be able to do this method of contraception, there are several conditions that must be met, namely:
The mother has not returned menstruation after childbirth or after childbirth Babies maximum six months old breastfeeding must be exclusive, or every 2-3 hours during the day, and the gap is not more than six hours at night
This method works because when a mother feeds her child, a hormone called prolactin is released, which at the same time suppresses the release of other hormones whose function is to ripen and fertilize the egg. So if the hormone is suppressed, the mother will become infertile for a while. So, hopefully answering your question.
