Can I Replace Birth Control Pills Into Injection Contraception?
, from the birth until last month I used 1 month ago. Well this month I tried to use pills, but I only took 1 week because it was not too dizzy u0026amp; nausea every time you take a pill. And my face also became spotty. A week off my pill I menstruated. Can I re-inject? Because I am afraid of getting pregnant, my first child is only 1 year and 4 months
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously I would like to confirm a few things beforehand:
When exactly did you stop using your birth control pills?
Are you currently menstruating?
Did you not use family planning at all during the break did you have unprotected sexual intercourse (do not use condoms)?
Basically if you really want to change birth control from contraception to birth control pills or vice versa from birth control pills to injectable birth control, you should not give a gap between giving birth control. The existence of a gap between the provision of family planning can cause pregnancy if you have sexual intercourse without other protection (do not use condoms).
If at this time you are still menstruating (only 1-3 days of your menstruation), you can immediately get a family planning injection because menstruation indicates that you are not pregnant. You may also have direct sexual intercourse without protection because family planning will immediately work to prevent pregnancy. If during this break you do not have sexual intercourse at all or you have always used condoms for sexual intercourse, then you can also immediately have a family planning injection because you may not be pregnant. However, if the KB injection is done when you are not menstruating, you must use additional contraception (condoms) for the first 7 days after you have the KB injection to ensure that the pregnancy will not occur. After 7 days have passed, you may have sexual intercourse as usual (may not use condoms). You must re-inject according to the schedule given by your midwife or doctor, do not look at your menstrual cycle. You still need to have family planning injections according to the schedule even though you haven't had your period, you menstruated faster, or your menstruation hasn't finished yet.
If at this time you have finished menstruation and in the pause you have had sexual intercourse without protection, then you must do a pregnancy check first before you can continue your family planning injection. Discuss with your midwife or doctor before you have a family planning injection.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
