Does The Uterus Remain Fertile After 3 Months Of Injection?
Hello my name is Zaleha, I want to ask, after the 3-month KB injection is completed, is my fetus still fertile
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Before I want to confirm in advance, do you mean that you have a family planning injection when you are pregnant?
Basically 3-monthly injection KB should not be given during pregnancy, so it is advisable to do a pregnancy check up first if the KB injection is done when not menstruating. 3-month injectable birth control is included in category X drugs, which are drugs that in animal studies indicate the possibility of abnormalities in the fetus when used, or there are studies in humans that do indicate the possibility of abnormalities in the fetus. However, research also shows that the majority of pregnant women who accidentally get birth control injections can give birth to children who are normal and healthy and there are no long-term side effects that occur in the fetus. If indeed you get a family planning injection accidentally while you are pregnant, you should do regular control to the obstetrician to monitor the health condition of your pregnancy and your fetus.
If what you mean by "fetus" in your question is your uterus, then after the 3-month KB injection is finished, your fertility will return, even though the return of this fertility will usually be slower (depending on how long you use the 3-month injection KB), it can ranges from 3 months to 18 months after the last KB injection. If up to 12 months after the effect of family planning injection ends, you don't get a pregnancy, you are still recommended to do an obstetrician's check-up for your and your partner's fertility checks.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
