Adult Breastfeeding Tubes
Since birth ive had no periods. Im only breastfeeding 50% of the time, baby is 6 months and my tubes have been tied. Should i be concerned?
Not really: Breast feeding will usually cause your body to produce several hormones including prolactin which will tend to interfere with your ovulatory mechanism and therefore with your periods. There is little cause for alarm for now... until you have stopped nursing and remained amenorrheic for several months thereafter. Tubal sterilizations are very effective,but some have a greater failure rate.Be safe ...Read more

I had my tubes removed after I had my son, we breastfed and I just had my period 5 months pp but now i'm a few days late. I know breastfeeding can mess with your cycle but with having my tubes removed give me irregular cycles?
Clarification...: If you are asking whether there are health benefits for an adult who drinks breast milk, i would say the risks outweigh the possible benefits. Certain infections (such the HIV virus and others) can be transmitted via breast milk. I would stick to my other milk choices (cow, goat, soy, rice, etc.). ...Read more

Breastfeeding n using arm implant as brith control I haven been cramping for the past days could I be pregnant or is it a side effect from the implant?
Implants for bc: Implants are progesterone and this hormone can cause lack of periods or occasional periods. The birth control comes from its effect on the lining of the womb, making it inhospitable to a fertilized egg. However, occasional periods and therefore infrequent pregnancy can occur. Get a serum HCG pregnancy test to be certain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Am using the arm implant as a birth control n still breastfeeding I keep stressing out about being pregnant again can I become pregnant ?
Nearly impossible: the contraceptive implant is one of the best contraceptive on the market, almost as good as getting your tubes tied. It would be highly unlikely for you to be pregnant if this was placed after childbirth and if you have been consistently breastfeeding. I would be very surprised, but you can always get a pregnancy test. ...Read more
