Can You Get Pregnant If Having Sex At Night After A Family Planning Injection?
, I want to ask, before I get married, I am taking a family planning program for 1 month in the afternoon. I will receive it tomorrow, right? I will be happy with my husband and high school, will I be pregnant?
Hello Ilma, Thank you for the question.
KB injection is a contraceptive device that contains hormones given by injection, can be in the form of injections every 1 month (1 month KB injection) or every 3 months (3 months KB injection). To answer your question, depending on when the KB injection was performed. If birth control is done on the first day of your menstruation, then the KB injection can directly protect you from pregnancy. Or in other words, if there is intercourse afterwards, you will not get pregnant. However, if a family planning injection is done on another day, then you have to wait 7 days for the birth control injection to effectively prevent pregnancy. Usually during this period, it is recommended to use additional contraceptives such as condoms (for 7 days) to prevent pregnancy. If birth control does not start on the first day of menstruation and you have intercourse the next day without using a condom, then the possibility of pregnancy exists because the effects of birth control have not yet appeared. Please consult with your obstetrician if you are still confused about the correct use of family planning injections.
I hope this helps.
