Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There are various types of contraception that you can choose from when planning your pregnancy, including the Pill and the 1-month injectable KB.
Birth control pills that you used previously contain the active composition of the synthetic hormone progesterone. This birth control pill has a relatively short working time when compared to other contraceptives, such as injectable contraceptives, implants, or IUDs. Because of this short working time, after the termination is stopped, you can be declared fertile again.
Unlike birth control pills, 1-month injectable contraceptives, which contain an active composition of a combination of synthetic estrogen and progesterone hormones, have a longer working time (ie 1 month, as the name suggests). However, you need to know that, after the initial injection, to be able to work effectively to prevent pregnancy, 1-month birth control injections take at least 5 to 7 days. Therefore, in the first week after the birth control injection, you are advised not to have sexual intercourse that involves penetration of the penis into the vagina. Or, if you want to have sexual intercourse, in the first week after your birth control injection, you are advised to use additional contraception to prevent pregnancy, such as condoms.
Having sex 2 days after the first injection of birth control can cause you to become pregnant. Because, at this time, you are not fully protected from the injectable birth control you are using, while the working period of the birth control pill you used previously has expired.
Therefore, if you experience signs of pregnancy, such as no menstruation, dizziness, nausea, more sensitive breasts, tiredness, frequent urination, difficulty defecating, and so on, we recommend that you do a test pack to determine whether a pregnancy has occurred. or not. Or, you can also go directly to an obstetrician for more accurate results.
Hope it helps ya..
