How To Change Contraception From Injections To Birth Control Pills?
I want to ask yesterday, February 2, 2019, I should have injected a family member 3 months ago but I would like to take a pill. Can I take this pill directly today?
Hello Indri Yani,
There are a variety of family planning methods ranging from injectable birth control, birth control pills, birth control implants, IUD or solid contraceptive methods through special procedures. If you have previously used Kb injections and want to switch to using Kb pills, then simply stop injecting and use Kb pills. Consumption of birth control pills should start from the first day to the fifth period to immediately provide protection from pregnancy.
If you take Kb pills outside the menstrual period, you can, but you need to postpone sexual intercourse for at least 7 days or use additional contraception for the first 7 days using Kb pills to provide protection. Kb pill consumption needs to be considered in a schedule where it needs to be taken every day and needs to be pursued at the same time every day to be more effective.
Side effects of birth control pills themselves include such as causing pain in the head and discomfort in the breast, nausea, bleeding outside the menstrual period, weight gain, or sudden mood swings. If you later find it inappropriate for the method of contraception you are using, it is better to check yourself to be given an explanation of the method of contraception that suits your condition.
