What Must Be Done So That Menstruation Regularly After Giving Birth
Initially I used KB for 3 months, after that it was 2 months after I stopped, how come I don’t have periods?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Menstrual cycle after giving birth will depend on several aspects. If up to 6 months after giving birth you always give exclusive breastfeeding to your child, then it is natural that you are not menstruating. This is because breastfeeding exclusively triggers the release of certain hormones that make women menstruating and infertile temporarily. This also makes breastfeeding exclusively in the first 6 months of a child's life can be useful as a natural contraceptive. Other aspects can also be due to fatigue taking care of children after childbirth, unfulfilled nutrition, and lack of sleep.
Then regarding the use of 3-month KB injections, in general, the side effects most often encountered from the use of hormonal contraceptives such as KB injections, implants and birth control pills are menstrual cycle irregularities. This is a natural thing, and is not a sign of abnormality. Her condition will improve by itself along with the waning of the contraceptive effect of your body. Regarding how long the effect will last on the body, for family planning injections recorded can last up to a year, but can also be faster such as 3 months, 6 months or 9 months. No one knows exactly how long the effect will last on someone's body, regardless of whether you have only injected it once or many times, the potential duration will be the same.
So the point is, there is no need to worry too much because what you are experiencing is most likely not a form of disorder. But if there are other complaints such as lower abdominal pain, unusual vaginal discharge, discharge of blood, itching, or menstruation still does not return even after a year has passed, consult an obstetrician for a history, physical examination and support. So, hopefully answering your question.
