Hello, Mrs. Sari Wulanti. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concerns that you feel.
3-month injection contraception is a type of contraception that contains the hormone progestin. This type of contraception works by inhibiting the release of eggs by the ovaries, thickening cervical mucus which causes disruption of sperm penetration, and inhibits the thickening of the uterine lining.
One of the side effects of progestin injection contraception is menstrual disorders. The response to these side effects varies between individuals, can be irregular or prolonged menstruation, especially in the first 3 months, or menstruation becomes rare, or not menstruating at all. Generally, if contraception is stopped, menstruation will return to normal after 5-7 months after cessation along with the return of fertility.
If you feel uncomfortable with complaints arising from this contraception, we advise you to consult directly with a specialist obstetrics and gynecologist so that you can take anamnesis, physical examination, and support examination if needed.
