Peace be upon you. Good morning doctor, I want to ask, my neighbor’s kmrin was injected in 3 months but he said it was injected in the right buttocks (1.5cc) and the left buttocks (1.5cc) depoprogestin as far as I know it was injected 1 time for 3 cc instead of 2 times . What should my neighbor do? Thank you for the answer 🙇.

Hello Asriyati,


Thank you for the question.

In 3-month injection KB contains synthetic progesterone hormone that can prevent pregnancy because of its ability to inhibit ovulation (removal of mature eggs from the ovaries to the uterus), fertilization (fertilization of eggs by sperm cells), and implantation (implantation of fertilizers into the wall womb). With a long period of work, family planning is often used by couples who want to postpone pregnancy, because it does not require the use of control to the doctor often.


There are a variety of 3-month injectable family planning supplies from various brands. Frequently, this KB is indeed injected intramuscularly (into the muscles). There are several injection sites that can be used to insert this KB, one of them is in the buttocks because of its large muscle mass. Frequently, indeed KB injection in the buttocks is done at once on one side of the buttocks. However, there are times when the injection needs to be done in parts, for example in people who are thin so that the muscle mass in the box is small. As long as the KB injection is carried out directly by competent medical personnel, such as doctors, obstetricians, or midwives, this seems to be harmless and does not necessarily reduce the effectiveness of family planning work.


So, don't worry too much


I hope this helps.
