Having Sex A Few Hours After The KB Injection, Is It Possible To Get Pregnant?
I just gave birth to my first child for only 51 days during which my husband fasted and continued in the afternoon. I injected KB 3 months a night we had intercourse, the KB injection was effective, yeah? I’m panicking because I’m not ready to get pregnant anymore?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically after you have passed the puerperium, your fertility may have returned (if you are not exclusively breastfeeding) and having sexual relations may result in pregnancy again. Injecting contraception (either 3 months or 1 month) requires time to be able to work (takes 7 days), therefore if you do not have birth control when you are menstruating, you will always be advised to use additional protection (condoms) during sexual intercourse in the first 7 days after the injection.
If indeed you are injecting birth control when you are not menstruating and if it has not been 5 days since you have sex, you should consider using emergency contraception so that pregnancy does not occur. If it has not been 3 days (72 hours) since you had sex, you can use Levonorgestrel pills as emergency contraception, but if it has passed 3 days, then you should consult a midwife or obstetrician to do an IUD (contraceptive device in the womb). This IUD can function as an emergency contraception (if installed within 5 days after intercourse) and as a long-term contraception.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
