Chances Of Getting Pregnant After Not Taking Birth Control Pills And Not Menstruating?
I want to ask if I’m 29 years old, it’s the first time I’ve taken the 21-day birth control pill. My question is if the 21-day birth control pill runs out and then after 7 days of rest, I don’t take birth control pills. I’m still having sex with my husband and wife. Can I get pregnant while I haven’t had my period yet and want to drink something else? I’m just afraid because the month hasn’t come yet and it’s a problem?rnThank you very much
Thank you for the question. Birth control pills are one of the most effective contraceptives to prevent pregnancy if used properly. There are two types of birth control pills, namely the birth control pill which contains 28 pills or 21 pills. Basically, the principle of using these two types of birth control pills is the same. The birth control pill which contains 28 pills consists of 21 hormone pills and 7 blank pills (placebo pills), while the birth control pill contains 21 pills, all of which contain hormone pills.
You are advised to start taking birth control pills in the first 5 days of your period so that you are immediately protected from pregnancy. If you take birth control pills outside of this time of menstruation, you are advised to use a condom for the first 7 days of taking birth control pills so that pregnancy does not occur. These birth control pills must be taken every day at the same time. After taking 21 hormone pills, for the next 7 days you don't need to take any pills before continuing to a new package after this 7 day void. Within these 7 days, you will usually have your period. You can start taking a new pack after 7 days, even if you haven't stopped menstruating or in other words you are not dependent on your next period. As long as you take these 21 hormone pills correctly, then you don't have to worry about having sex within 7 days because you will still be protected from pregnancy.
If you still have doubts or have further questions, you can consult a general practitioner or obstetrician so that the information you receive is clearer.
