It Is Possible To Get Pregnant If You Have Intercourse After The Birth Control And Have Not Yet Menstruated?
I want to stop at night … I stopped after 1 month of intercourse, but after intercourse about 1 week ago January 11 before my menstruation to one month … how come I haven’t menstruated until February … what is the possibility of getting pregnant ??
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. There are various types of contraception with various purposes and functions. There are birth control injections, birth control pills, implants / implants, condoms, to those involving surgery. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages.
In your case, if the contraception that you use before and after sexual intercourse is in the form of injectable birth control (regardless of what is every 1 month or every 3 months), then among the disadvantages is for those who ultimately decide to have children, after stopping use, the effect might still work for an average of around 3 months. So there are still couples who can not get pregnant within a period of 3 months even though the woman has not used injection contraception. There are even studies that show that it is not impossible that the effect will last for a year after cessation of use. Another case with the use of birth control pills and condoms, if not used properly, the possibility of getting pregnant increases rapidly.
From your story and the title that you wrote, we captured the impression that you used an injectable birth control that had stopped but did not last up to 3 months and in the middle of the gap you had sexual intercourse. If this is so, theoretically, you should not be pregnant because there are still effects from the previous use of family planning injections.
As for the menstrual conditions you are experiencing, this could be because one of the side effects of hormonal birth control is not menstruation, regardless of whether the birth control is in the form of injections, pills or implants. Another factor that can also play a role is a lifestyle that is not good, with an ideal body weight, stress, eating fatty foods, fatigue, and lack of sleep. However, we cannot be certain if without a direct inspection. Therefore, to avoid misunderstanding, it is better if you also make sure to return by consulting directly to a general practitioner or obstetrician. So, hopefully answering your question.
