Irregular Menstruation After 3-month KB Injection?
I want to ask, right? I’m 3 months ago, but when I get my period … I will menstruate the next month for a full month, in the second month I don’t menstruate at all … How is it safe? Can you get pregnant ??
Hello Yayang Fajar Lestari,
3-month KB injections contain the hormone progestin alone. 3-month family planning injections can be given to mothers who are breastfeeding because they do not interfere with milk production. 3 month KB injection works to prevent pregnancy by:
Prevent ovulation (release of eggs) Change the thickness of cervical mucus so that sperm difficult to fertilize the egg Changing the thickness of the uterine wall so that the results of fertilization can not stick to 3-month KB injection has another advantage that is not interacting with other drugs consumed by the mother, can be used for mothers who cannot use the hormone estrogen, injections are done every 3 months (not as often as 1 month of injection KB), can stop at any time, and can reduce the risk of pelvic inflammation and cervical cancer.
Like other hormonal contraceptives, 3-month KB injections can also cause side effects as follows:
Menstrual disorders: no menstruation at all, spots between menstrual cycles, menstruation is small. Headaches Increased weight Reducing bone density Does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases It can take up to 1 year to return to fertility after stopping birth control for 3 months. Failure of 3-month injectable birth control can arise due to an improper schedule of family planning injections, the timing of the first injection of improper birth control, so fertile that fertilization cannot be prevented by the injection.
If the KB injection has been done correctly, then the possibility of failure is very small. However, it never hurts to do a test pack independently if you feel any changes in your body that resemble the early signs of pregnancy. If the side effects of 3-month KB injections do not meet your expectations and interfere with your daily activities, you can consult a doctor to determine other types of contraception that are more appropriate for your situation. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
