Birth Control Pills Are Normal And Normal?
my partner has already taken the usual KB pill with a dose of 4×2, after taking the KB pill in an emergency, will the cycle of taking KB pills return to normal 1×1 / day or have they stopped for a while?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are various types of contraception that couples can choose to delay or regulate between pregnancies, including emergency contraceptive pills and birth control pills.
The emergency contraceptive pill contains the active ingredient levonorgestrel, which is a derivative of the hormone progesterone. This medicine, when consumed in the right way, can prevent the fertilization of eggs by sperm cells, namely by thickening the cervical mucus, making it difficult for sperm cells to reach the uterus. However, these emergency contraceptive pills cannot thwart conception that has already occurred. Emergency contraceptive pills should only be consumed in urgent conditions, for example in victims of rape, leaking condoms, or IUDs who have expulsed, so not for routine consumption. Consumption of emergency contraceptive pills can not be done carelessly, but must be based on instructions from a doctor.
In line with the above, birth control pills are also useful in preventing pregnancy, namely by changing the hormonal balance in the body so that cervical mucus becomes thicker and fertilization does not occur. There are 2 types of birth control pills, namely those containing a combination of the hormones estrogen and progesterone, and those containing only the hormone progesterone. The birth control pill is a type of contraception that is easy to use, although it still requires supervision from a doctor.
Neither the emergency contraceptive pill nor the birth control pill are included in the category of over-the-counter drugs. Therefore, it is not our authority to explain the procedure for consumption in a free forum like this without directly examining your partner. Therefore, in order to prevent misuse of information, you should consult directly with your doctor or the nearest obstetrician.
Our advice, if you and your partner intend to postpone pregnancy, you should choose another contraceptive that is relatively safe to use independently, for example a condom or a diaphragm. Or, if you want to use other contraceptives, you and your partner should first check with a doctor.
I hope this helps.
