Having Sex After Forgetting To Take Birth Control Pills Can You Get Pregnant?
um, having sex with my husband, I forgot to take birth control pills, but I have been taking birth control pills since 3 months ago. Can it get pregnant or not, doctor? Because I don’t want to have a second child yet.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. Birth control pills is a type of contraception that is widely used because of its ease of consumption without the need to regularly check with a doctor. This pill contains hormonal preparations which work to modify the hormonal balance in the body so that fertilization of the egg by sperm cells does not occur which can cause pregnancy.
The best way to take birth control pills is to use the same time every day to maximize their effectiveness.
Here's a guide you can use as a guideline if you forget to take birth control pills:
· If you forget to take birth control pills in less than 12 hours, then you can still take birth control pills immediately when you remember
· If you forget to take birth control pills for 1 day (24 hours), then you can immediately take 2 birth control pills at once when you remember.
· If you forget to take birth control pills for more than 24 hours (1-2 days), you can continue taking birth control pills when you remember. However, it should be noted that the effectiveness of birth control pills will decrease, so in cases like this, additional methods of contraception such as condoms or not having intercourse during the first week are needed.
The possibility of getting pregnant when you forget to take birth control pills and have sexual intercourse depends on how many hours you forgot to take birth control pills, if you forget to take birth control pills and have intercourse but after that you immediately take the forgotten birth control pills, the chances of getting pregnant are small. However, if you forget to take birth control pills for more than 24 hours and continue to have unprotected sex as usual, it is very risky to cause pregnancy. To find out, you can do early detection using a testpack tool. Or if you want to get more accurate results, you can go straight to an obstetrics and gynecology specialist for an ultrasound (ultrasound) examination.
Thus the information from me, hopefully useful.
