Is i-pill advisable for a mother during lactation?
if menses started already then take ipill...else not ..explained
Thanks for the query to hcm,
IF the menses have not restarted after the child birth yet , then your wife is in the period of lactational amenorrhoea where ovulation doesn't occur and she is pregnancy safe and there is no requirement of an emergency contraceptive pill at all.
But if menses have resumed then she may get pregnant.An ipill can be considered in such case. Progesterones are secreted in breast milk but because of the low levels of progesterone in breastmilk, even with the high-dose products, amounts ingested by the infant are small and would not be expected to cause any adverse effects in breastfed infants.
So i hope i have answered your query in detail,
She had a vaginal bleeding after ceaser delivery for around 1 month, after 1 month she had a spooting for 1to 2 days, confused with mensturation.
After how many days of delivery mens cycle start.
she is in lactational amenorrhoeic stage
After the delivery the bleeding that she had for a month was lochia and not menses which is normal. Then she had spotting and then the bleeding stopped till date as she has been exclusively breast feeding, so she is in lactational amenorrhoeic stage and unlikely that she would have ovulated. In that case she need not take the ipill.
