This is M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ second child unlike M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ first, M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ menstruation began d following month I had her. For M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ first child I never did EBF but am on EBF presently nd yet to see M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ flow. I want to know how safe it is for me to have unprotected s _ x now since am yet to see M̶̲̥̅γ̲̣̣̥ monthly flow.

Hi, I really don't know what EBF is, but I'll advice you don't have sex untill after 41days, that's what I was told after having my baby. I didn't see my period too untill 2weeks to my son's 1 year birthday. Aldou I was told its because I exclusively breastfeed my baby. Its better you stay off sex for now, but if you really want to have sex then discuss with your doctor about it, I'm sure he/she will present options of family planning or your partner using protection, the choice is yours.

As for your tummy try and get your stomach mubbed with hot water and tie cloth on your tummy or wear gardle bra, (I wore gardle bra during mine) for 41days after giving birth, it will reduce the size of your tummy.

I hope I was able to help.

Protect yourself until you begin to see ur mensuration.Once blood is not yet seen you can become pregnant at any time(because u will not be able to calculate your safe period)...which Im sure you'll not like.

You could still be ovulating and such even without seeing your menses. EBF isnt a birth control. wink

Ebf can assist as a birth control measure. have you heard of Lactational amenorrhea method?http://www.babycenter.com/0_lactational-amenorrhea-method-lam_1477017.bc


This method has been effective for me for the first six months.

Ebf as contraceptive works for some people but not everybody. I have sisters whom ebf as contraceptive worked for some babies and the other babies were conceived while ebfing without any period. Infact I have a colleague who was almost 3m pregnant while on ebf and no period before she reÀlised she was pregnant. They kept treating her for malaria etc until she decided to do a pt on her own and discovered through scan that she had almost crossed her first trimester without realizing it whereas ebf worked for her 2 other kids. All am trying to say is what works for one person or even baby may not work for the other. Use prevention if u really don't want another baby so soon. Am not on ebf as I also include formular for my boys and they are almost 4m yet no period but for me o, I don't want to bother myself with fear of a natural pregnancy cos I'll embrace it with open hands even with the sweet headache and stress my boys are giving me.
As for reducing ur tummy, use wrapper to tie it as it seem to be more effective than girdle. All the best.
