family planning

family planning has been a 'trend' lately. for newlyweds, most of them opt to use many methods of family planning for various different reasons. well, it's up to them right? as for me n hubby, we never planned for children after we got married.alhamdulillah, after 2 months of marriage, i was pregnant for 5 weeks :)

after nia was born, i was introduced to various methods of family planning by my gynae. before my confinement ended, i met my gynae and we discussed about family planning while hubby sat outside with little nia who was just 1 month plus. she explained to me about 4 types of family planning which i can choose, namely:

1. contraceptive pill
2. injection
3. iud
4. implan

if im not mistaken, the result of all 4methods is we wont get our monthly red flag. i asked the doctor, "takda jerawat keluar ke?kulit cantik ke?perut tak bloated ke?" coz in my mind, if darah tak keluar, sure badan kita penuh dgn darah kotor kan?haha.actually, the effect of all these is to stop our menstrual system so mmg our telur2 tu takkan dikeluarkan pun in the first there's no such thing as telur tu tak disenyawakan lalu menjadi darah kotor....:)

if i choose the pill, meaning i will get the chance of forgetting to consume it due to time factor,lupa or undiscipline. bcoz we need to eat the pill every single day without fail.or else we will get the chance of being subur option no.1 i tak minat.

the second choice is injection or suntikan hormon progestin in any parts of my otot lengan, punggung or paha. this injection will release a hormone called progestin that will stop our ovulation process in the uterus. this injection will only last about 10-13 weeks. meaning, we have to 'renew' the injection at the end of every 3 months. hmm.i dont like this,just like renewing my driving license where i tend to forget especially when it's last minute so last2 jadi malas.sgt tak praktikal especially if we are busy and need to set an appointment date yg kdg2 tak boleh ditepati.

iud is a small thing made of plastic which contain progestin hormone too.basically the function is the same, once it is inserted in our vagina, it will 'thicken' our servics and sort of jadi penyumbat la untuk halang the sperms from entering the uterus lalu persenyawaan telur pun tak menjadi:( pun i kureng sikit,of course, imagining something being inserted in our vagina for a few years!!oh noooo...

the last option explained to me by my gynae is implan or implanon. its a small plastic rod yg sgt la nipis dan pendek which is inserted under our skin at the arm part.the effect is also the same as method number 3.hormon yg sama juga akan dirembeskan.hehe.these method is quite popular nowadays, even the doctor has been using it for a few years.and to her, not getting her period is so besstt!! (mmg best pun coz tak leceh and takyah beli pad kan??) these implanon will last for 3 years and if within the 3 years, say 2 years tibe2 we change our mind and nak anak balik,we can just take it out.usually after few months buka,regular period akan dtg balik..and implanon will make our skin become softer n supple!hehe.best2.the only negative part is, since our hormone dah lari, so nafsu makan mungkin naik n if tak berhati2, boleh naik berat badan la :( but implanon only costs rm500 at my gynae's place and i think it's worth the 3 years period.
so, option no 4 sgt2 la menarik hati saya yg tak sabar2 nak bagitau n bincang dgn suami :):):)

so i set another appointment date wif the doctor for implanon and walked out of her room i opened my mouth about "kaedah merancang", my husband's face changed.he has his own reasons la..firstly, tak elok rancang2, nanti tuhan tak bagi betul2 after 3 years tu macamana? secondly,he's already 35 this year so he doesnt want to send his child to std 1 when he's already 50 :p thirdly, im still young, so at this age i should do my part as a wife which is to produce babies so that by the age of 30 i can rest and maintain my body :0)

ok ok sayang,who am i to object u, right?after lots of arguments pun i think ur reasons tu masuk akal after i have done deep,considerate thinking.well,it all depends on the husband and wife to reach and settle on an,no 2nd visit to the gynae as scheduled,and now we are just practising the natural method..insyaallah,when nia reaches 2 years old,she may get a new companion :) kesian kan kalau sorang2 takda kwn...then maybe i will start thinking about these methods again.apa pun kita hanya mampu merancang je kan??

btw,im just sharing these infos for our future guidelines as every couple has different goals to achieve in their lifes.the choice is in our hand,whether to have 1,2,3, or even 10 children.the only problem is the time factor,sanggupkah anda melalui segala proses mengandung dan bersalin sedangkan rahim dan badan and belum cukup rehat lagi??whatever it is, family planning is good to improve and maintain our family's financial, educational and economical status. the choice is yours, and i have chose mine :)
