Menstruation Is Not Smooth After Injecting KB?
hello good afternoon, I have been married since 1 year ago, I did postpone pregnancy by using injections 1 month since the beginning of marriage, I have stopped injecting since 6 months ago. but my period is not smooth. even 2x my consecutive menstruation is late 3 months. 3 months once so menstruation. is that normal huh? What are my symptoms?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. KB injection is a method of contraception that works by injecting certain hormones into the body. This method is more or less the same as birth control pills, implants or implants and only some of the IUDs are different is how to get it into the body.
Because it is in the form of hormones, the impact felt by the body on the existence of contraception is not just a delay in pregnancy, but everything that is influenced by hormones, including weight gain, acne growth, mood swings and irregular menstrual cycles. And specifically for family planning injections, regardless of whether you have only injected it once or for years, the effect does not necessarily disappear with cessation of use. The effects generally fade within 3 months, but not a few also last for up to 6 months, and even a year. So it is still very possible that the condition you are experiencing because of the contraceptive effect is still not finished. And this is also one of the shortcomings of this method, that users cannot immediately get pregnant if at any time they want to have a baby.
Of course, this may not be due to the method of contraception, but because of other things such as stress, lack of sleep, excess weight or lack of weight, weight up and down too dramatically, thyroid hormone imbalance, or the presence of cysts. But all these possibilities still cannot be ascertained without direct inspection. Therefore, we recommend that you check your condition with your obstetrician to get an examination and certainty about it. The handling that you will receive later depends on the results of the inspection.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much, get enough rest, maintain ideal body weight, multiply the consumption of vegetables and fruit, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
