Having Sex During Menstruation Because Of KB Injections?
doctor, I want to ask, I injected 3 months of family planning, after that I came out with spots for up to 1 month and it hasn’t stopped, can I have sex if there are still blood spots? Because it’s been 1 month I haven’t stopped too. Thank you
One of the side effects of injectable contraceptives is changes in the menstrual cycle, including irregular menstrual cycles, prolonged menstruation, scanty menstruation, no menstruation at all, or spotting outside the menstrual cycle as you are experiencing. These side effects will generally improve with time.
For intimate relationships, it is actually okay to have sex when there are spots or menstruation. But keep in mind that not everyone feels comfortable when having sex when women have spots / menstruation. If you and your husband feel comfortable, of course, intercourse can be done. If you feel uncomfortable, maybe you can try using a condom during intercourse to make it more comfortable.
In addition to comfort, another thing that needs to be considered when having sex when having spots is the increased risk of sexually transmitted diseases because the blood vessels are open. This risk certainly does not occur if both parties are equally healthy and do not have sexually transmitted diseases.
