If the mother has stopped breastfeeding, then the menstrual cycle will resume in about two months. In breastfeeding women, it is very difficult to predict the onset of the first menstruation. This can happen both in the second week after birth, and at 18. Ovulation occurs immediately before menstruation, which means that the likelihood of an unwanted pregnancy will be ahead of time. Because women who are not breastfeeding, it is best to start using some type of contraceptive three weeks after the baby is born. And it is better not to postpone this question indefinitely in order to avoid an unplanned pregnancy. The reasons for stopping breastfeeding the baby can be different: the decision of the mother, the milk suddenly disappeared, the child does not accept mother’s milk. Regardless of the reason, the use of contraception is necessary immediately after the end of the lactation period. At your first visits to your gynecologist after childbirth, you should discuss the method of contraception that is best for you. Today, contraceptive products are very diverse. You can choose from cheaper – condoms, diaphragms, and so on, to more expensive – vaginal coils (gold, silver, copper, plastic), sterilization. The most popular are vaginal coils containing the drug Mirena.
