Different KB Injection Schedule?
Hello, I want to ask, my wife is using KB for 3 months, but for the schedule of injection back from the scheduled midwife when compared to the formula and injection table there is a difference, the schedule of the midwife’s date goes forward or 11 days faster than the date calculated using the formula and date in the table, is this okay? Or what should I do? Please explain, and thank you for the answer
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
3-month injection contraception is a type of contraception that contains the hormone progestin. This contraception works by suppressing the release of eggs (ovulation), thicken the cervical mucus so that it interferes with sperm penetration, and affects the thickness of the lining of the uterus to thin out. This type of contraception is very effective if used regularly and in accordance with the procedure. The incidence of pregnancy in its use is only 0.3 per 100 women in the first year of use.
Patients who use 3 monthly injection contraception can calculate their own next injection date based on the menstrual cycle. Add the date of the last time the contraception was injected with 84. The number 84 is based on 3 x 28 days, the average menstrual cycle is normal. For example, for example the patient gets the first 3-month injection contraception on July 5, 2019. By adding the 5th to 84, that means 89. Because July is 31 days and August is 31 days, that is 87 - 31 - 31 = 27. So, the date for the next 3 monthly injection contraception is 27 September 2019.
An alternative way is to use a calendar. Assume that the day of injection of contraception is always the same. For example, if the first injection is Friday, the next 3-month contraceptive injection day will also be Friday the following 12 weeks. For example, if you first inject 3-month contraception on Friday, July 5, 2019, then the schedule for the next injection is Friday, September 27, 2019.
However, you and your wife still need to consult with a doctor, midwife, or obstetrician and gynecologist who treats your wife regarding the 3-month injection contraception schedule. Doctors or midwives who deal directly with patients may have separate considerations in planning schedules according to the patient's health conditions.
