Irregular Menstrual Cycles After Implantation Of KB?
Good morning, I have implanted birth control for 2 months. When I installed the KB I was menstruating. then menstruation becomes more than 1x. 1 week ago I experienced spots. And right now I haven’t menstruated. The relationship cycle with my husband is quite active, is there any possibility of me getting pregnant?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Implanted contraception is a method of contraception that is inserted under the skin and can last up to around 3-7 years (depending on the type of product). This type of contraception works by inhibiting the release of eggs by the ovaries, thickening cervical mucus, inhibiting the thickening of the uterine wall, and interfering with sperm transport in the female reproductive tract.
Basically, all types of contraception, including implantable contraception, nothing can perfectly prevent pregnancy. There is always the possibility for pregnancy to occur despite using any type of contraception, but the possibility is certainly far smaller than sexual intercourse without contraception. Implanted contraception is actually classified as an effective pregnancy prevention method. This type of contraception has the advantage of effectiveness, namely the risk of pregnancy occurring is only less than 1 in 100 women on its use in the first 1 year.
Meanwhile, pregnancy can be characterized by several presumptive symptoms, which means that the appearance of these symptoms indicates the possibility of pregnancy. Presumptive symptoms of pregnancy include:
No menstruation (amenorrhoea), but this symptom can only be relied upon as a presumptive symptom of pregnancy in women with regular menstrual cycles Nausea and vomiting Changes in the urinary tract (example: becoming more frequent urination, including at night) Changes in the breast (example: enlarged, discoloration, exiting colostrum) Changes in the skin (for example: black lines in the abdomen, stretch marks, visible dilation of skin capillaries) To determine whether pregnancy occurs, you are advised to do an examination with a doctor, midwife, or obstetrician and womb. The doctor will conduct anamnesis and examination to identify definite signs of pregnancy, including:
Identification of the appearance of a gestational sac, embryo, or fetus on ultrasound examination The presence of a fetal heart rate on examination with Doppler ultrasound (starting at week 10) or Laenec fetoscope aids (starting at 18-20 weeks) Fetal loss on physical examination (starting week) 22) If you still have questions about the contraception you are using, don't hesitate to consult with your doctor, midwife, or obstetrician and gynecologist who treats you.
