Question (1/3)

I'm breastfeeding my baby, I do not need to take a contraceptive right away

That's rightIt's wrong


If you are breastfeeding exclusively, after delivery, the pituitary secretes a hormone, prolactin, which will allow the rise of milk and the maintenance of lactation throughout the duration of breastfeeding. In principle, this hormone blocks ovulation and the return of diapers. But be careful! In rare cases, ovulation still occurs. It is therefore essential to resume contraception.
