Can You Move From Birth Control To Birth Control Pills Without Consulting First?
In the afternoon, I want to ask again that I am running an injection program every 3 months, now the injection schedule is again on January 4, 2020 and I want to switch to birth control pills, go lazy, can I choose birth control pills according to what I want, should I consult with the midwife first? . Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, birth control pills are classified as hard drugs (drugs with a red circle label) which you should never take without consulting a doctor first. Therefore it is best to consult a doctor first before you make the injection of birth control injections to the birth control pill (it would be better if you go to an obstetrician), but at least consult a midwife first. There are two types of birth control pills, combined birth control pills and progesterone birth control pills only. Both have advantages and disadvantages of each and also its own contraindications. How to start taking birth control pills must also be adjusted to the conditions of each woman, therefore consultation to the doctor / midwife is still needed.
If you want to use practical birth control (no need to go back and forth to the doctor or to the midwife), can be used for a long time, you can try to switch to implant KB (which can last up to 3 years) or KB IUD (contraceptive device in uterus) which can last 3-10 years (depending on the type). Consult with your doctor or midwife about the advantages and disadvantages of each family planning so that you can better decide which birth control program is most suitable for you and your partner.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
