After childbirth, couples finally ushered in a “liberation” day, and contraception has become the top priority between husband and wife. Many postpartum women resume sexual intercourse during breastfeeding, at this time the female body is recovering, many people do not want to have too much trouble, the use of contraceptives is to take contraceptives. However, taking contraceptives during lactation has adverse effects, one of the important reasons is to affect milk secretion and the health of the baby. Therefore, lactating women should not take contraceptives.

1. Affecting milk quality

Contraceptives contain testosterone, progesterone and estrogen derivatives that inhibit milk production. Moreover, contraceptives contain a lot of hormones, which affect the growth and development of infants as milk enters the body. It can be said that the birth of the contraceptive pill into the body of Bao Ma is “toxic” milk. So if a mother who chooses to breastfeed takes the pill, she needs to stop breastfeeding.

2, cause the baby to develop ahead of time.

Contraceptives contain large amounts of estrogen, which can lead to early development of the baby: early breast development in boys, vaginal epithelial hyperplasia in girls and labia hypertrophy. Therefore, taking the contraceptive pill during lactation is a very terrible thing.

3, cause dirty organs to have a burden.

In addition to the adverse effects on babies, breast-feeding contraceptives can also affect the health of Baoma. If a postpartum new mother suffers from heart, liver, kidney disease or diabetes, it is not appropriate to take contraceptives, because these drugs may increase the burden of these organs, affecting postpartum physical recovery.

4, lead to obesity

Taking the contraceptive pill during lactation has a great impact on the recovery of the body.

5, there is a “pregnancy reaction”.

“Fatigue, nausea and vomiting. Is breast-feeding still `Zhongzhao’?”Breast-feeding contraceptives will also appear in a variety of false pregnancy adverse reactions.

Therefore, in the lactation period, I still recommend contraception.

Easy to pass the lactation period.


Mainly play a barrier role, while effectively preventing bacteria, fungi, trichomonas, protozoa, gonorrhoea and viruses and other infections and transmission, prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, so that the reproductive tract with weak postpartum resistance from infection, is the best choice of contraception for lactating women. If you want to wear it at the beginning of love, you must check if there is a break in the sleeve, and exhaust the top gas of the sleeve, and take it out in time after the event to ensure the effect.

“Female cap”

On a spring shaped metal ring, a bowl shaped latex film is wrapped. Putting it on the cervix can prevent the semen from entering the uterus, avoid the sperm and egg encounter, and achieve contraceptive purposes. Mom should wear it before love. She doesn’t need to take medicine or injections when she wears it. Long-term use has no effect on her health and sex life.

“Intrauterine device

Easy to use, ideal contraceptive effect, is more suitable for breast-feeding mothers a contraceptive tool, suitable for any stage of postpartum lactation, safe and effective, if the user is not infected can be placed immediately. Six months after cesarean section, IUD can only be placed.

Sterilization operation

This is a permanent sterilization method, but only when there is no need for fertility. During sterilization, lactation should be suspended for a period of time because anesthetics are excreted through the milk. This method is not suitable for lactating women with severe neurosis, sexually transmitted diseases or inflammation of the reproductive system.
