Chances Of Getting Pregnant After Taking Birth Control Pills For 4 Days And Missed Menstruation?
Hello, my name is early, 27 years old,, I was late taking the birth control pill for 4 days, but before that I didn’t have sex for 3 weeks until it was too late to drink this,, is there a possibility of getting pregnant,, before I didn’t have my period and now it should be the date of my period but I’m not menstruating, it’s been 3 days late, can I get pregnant? At first I wanted to take the pill and didn’t want to be in family planning, thank you
Thank you for asking Alodokter.
Being late to take birth control pills for more than 24 hours can lead to a high risk of causing an unplanned pregnancy. However, if at this time you feel you have never had sex at all, then pregnancy will certainly not occur.
Your missed period may be due to hormonal balance disorders, one of which can be triggered by taking birth control pills. In addition, it could also be that your period is late because you are stressed, tired, experienced a drastic increase or decrease in weight, or also due to certain diseases, such as thyroid gland disorders, ovarian cysts, and so on.
If your period is only 3 days late, you can live a healthy lifestyle to help launch menstruation, namely by sleeping more regularly, staying away from stress, eating a balanced diet, and exercising regularly. Keep taking birth control pills regularly. And understand, that to achieve its effect in preventing pregnancy, birth control pills take at least 5 to 7 days from the start of their use. So, to minimize the risk of getting pregnant, you should avoid sexual intercourse in the first week you take the birth control pill again after forgetting it. You can also use additional contraception, such as condoms, in the first week to prevent pregnancy.
However, if your period doesn't come for more than 3 months in a row, try to see a doctor who specializes in obstetrics and gynecology.
I hope this helps.
