Post Partum


Felicia Rubin Pharmacist View profile

Unfortunately, this product is not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women.

It is a very good formula in that it elevates brain serotonin, dopamine & nor-adrenaline. As long as you are breastfeeding, you are limited to homeopathic remedies,unless prescribed by your medical practitioner . Heel have an excellent product called Nervoheel N, for nervous tension & general exhaustion. This could assist your depression.

However, often after pregnancy & the birth of a baby, post-partum blues set in & must be treated. Please discuss with your medical practitioner.

With very best wishes & may you enjoy your baby.

Regards

The body goes through a dramatic hormonal flux during pregnancy and then again after the delivery of a baby. Your signs and symptoms mentioned of not returning to menses yet, even at 11 weeks is not unusual, and the main cause is often as a result of the body trying to readjust to a regular hormonal pattern. There are other factors, but as I have no other history to work from, I won’t discuss them here. Having unprotected intercourse at 9 weeks post delivery is fine for you health wise, but there is always a small chance that there could be a pregnancy - having said this, I don’t think that you are pregnant, but for peace of mind, I do suggest that you have a urine test done for pregnancy, so as to eliminate this possibility, as it is obviously a concern. The urine pregnancy test can be done at our Well Clinics, and I suggest that it is done before 10h00 in the morning, as the HCG hormone (human chorionic gonadotrophin hormone) is only concentrated in urine in the earlier part of the morning. When the HCG hormone is raised, a pregnancy strip tests positive. To answer your question further, the possibility of a 2 week gestation can be determined as being either negative or positive with this test. Accuracy is 98% for this test. Please feel free to ‘phone for an appointment at either of the Well Clinics, and at the same time use the support offered for your postpartum depression. I do hope that you feel better soon. Kind regards, Angela, Nursing Practitioner.

With you being on the Microval contraceptive pill, this would have been recommended as a result of you recently having had delivery of a baby. Therefore your depression must be assessed by a medical doctor, as in either a general practitioner or a gynaecologist, so as to determine the extent of the depression. Depression as in post delivery, is graded as either: the ‘ baby blues’; or postnatal depression; and a more serious type of depression called puerperal depression. You must have your ‘low moments/depression’ assessed so as to ensure the correct approach and treatment for these symptoms and condition. I do urge you to make this responsible appointment please - should you need medication, then this can be prescribed without delay. Then you can be guided correctly about further family planning. You may not even have to change you pill once the above is resolved. Take special care. Kind regards, Angela, Nursing Practitioner.
