You must be very familiar with the slogan two children is better proclaimed by the government.
The family planning program itself is a program issued by the government in order to control the population, which will have an effect on family welfare as well as the health of a mother. Broadly speaking, this program is certainly sufficient to have a number of positive effects that can be felt by a family.
Even so, it turns out that there are still many women who are still feeling lazy about this one government program. Many women or young mothers are afraid of the hormonal side effects of using this contraceptive. There are a lot of worries felt by these mothers, starting from the main hormonal side effects, to problems such as disturbing the relationship between husband and wife and obesity.
Wuri Andayani, a midwife at Puskesmas T Crafts, Malang Regency, often finds that many mothers complain about this. Many of them are afraid and worried if they will be affected by the use of contraception. To respond to this, Wuri suggested providing guidance and information to mothers regarding the use of contraceptives.
Wuri tried to provide direction to eliminate suggestions and also issues that developed in the community regarding the side effects of using contraceptives used by mothers. It is necessary to use contraception that is appropriate and in accordance with the needs and conditions of the mother. Especially in the current era, the choice of contraception itself is very diverse, ranging from hormonal to non-hormonal ones.
There are still many people who have middle to lower economies who do not realize how important this program is for public health. Wuri, who is a KB Ambassador, said that by not using family planning, there would be a lot of bad risks that could occur.
Puan Maharanie as the Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture of Indonesia had mentioned the reasons why many women do not use family planning. In the commemoration of World Contraception Day held by Poncokusumo Village, Puan stated that many women decide not to use family planning because they are afraid that their bodies will become fat and not attractive anymore.
In general, what makes the body fat is the use of injectable contraceptives that are not accompanied by dietary adjustments. Basically, injectable birth control will make mothers who use it experience an increase in appetite. Therefore, those who use it must be given education, so that they can control and control their diet so that they can stay in their condition.
In line with what Puan Maharanie said, Dwi Listyawardani as BKKBN’s Family Planning and Reproductive Health also said that the udha family planning program had made various advances. With these advances, various contraceptive options are available that can be tailored to the condition of the mother. Each mother can choose a contraceptive device that can be used in the short or long term. According to Dwi himself, when compared to the past, the difference is in the choice of variants and the hormonal side effects which are much smoother than in the past.
With the right efforts and continuous education, of course, this can make many mothers start to realize the importance of joining the family planning program that has been launched by the government. In order to eradicate the myths about hormonal and cultural effects, it is necessary to continue to do so so that all are aware of the importance of family planning.
