Hi Iin,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The 3-month injection of contraception is one type of contraception that is widely used because of its ease of use. However, not infrequently, many KB users do not know the mechanism of action. In fact, knowledge of this is very important to prevent the possibility of unwanted pregnancy.


In the 3-month injection contraceptive contained a synthetic progesterone hormone, namely Depo Provera. This hormone modifies the balance of reproductive hormones in a woman's body in order to prevent fertilization of an egg by a sperm cell. As a result of this hormonal modification, the cervical mucus will become thicker, ovulation will be inhibited, and the uterine wall will be designed in such a way that it is thinner and is not ready to accept the result of fertilization (if fertilization occurs). When used in the right way, 3 month injection contraception is very effective in preventing pregnancy, even up to 99%.


The 3 month injection of contraceptive injection can be done at any time. Most importantly, you need to understand that from the start of the injection (the first time), the 3-month injection contraceptive takes time to work effectively to prevent pregnancy at least after 5 to 7 days. Therefore, in the first 1 week after 3 months of birth control injection, you should not have sexual intercourse first. Or, you can also have sexual intercourse, but with the help of additional contraception, for example, a condom or diaphragm. After 1 week, you can freely have sex without worrying about pregnancy.


You need to remember, that compliance with injection schedules is very influential on the effectiveness of the 3 months injection of contraception. Therefore, keep a careful note of your next injection schedule as recommended by the doctor.


I hope this helps.
