User:hi doctor
User:Shall I ask you Gyenic questions?
Doctor:Yes you can ask
Doctor:It seems you moved out of the chat
Doctor:Are you there?
User:there was delay and i thought
Doctor:Please go ahead
Doctor:with the query
User:there is some tech prob
User:my wife delivered babby 3 months ago and she is now lactating and there were no periods yet
User:we haven't started sex till 3 months
User:after 3 months depo proverra (contraceptive) was given to her
User:after 30 hr from the shot we engaged in sex without condom
User:is a triple protection is needed to avoid pregnancy
User:depo provera + lactation amonnorea itself offers double protection right?
User:is a 3rd protection i.e. condom needed?
User:baby is completely milk fed from mother
User:now pls answer
Doctor:You cannot count Depo provera to be protecting till 3wks to one month
Doctor:The action does not reach the peak so we advise alternative contraception
User:what about lactation amonnorea?
Doctor:Now in your case since the mother did not start on menstrual periods you are safe
Doctor:Once the periods start and regularise it generally takes at least one to two cycles for the Uterus to be viable again
User:so after periods we have to ensure double protection right?
User:till then even if we engage in sex without condom it is safe right?
Doctor:Yeah technically speaking
User:ok thanks a lot
User:that's all i have
User:have a good day doctor
Doctor:you too
Doctor:Good health
Doctor:Bye for now
