Menstruation Still Comes Out Even Though Using Injection Contraception For 3 Months After Postpartum?
I want to ask, I just started my 3rd month birth date on August 1 after completing the puerperium. But I’m still menstruating. If I have sex after 1 month out in the inside can I get pregnant. R nThank you.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Injectable contraception is a method of contraception that works by injecting certain hormones into a person's body so that these hormones block the meeting of eggs and sperm cells through a series of processes. In Indonesia, injection family planning is divided into two, namely once a month and once every 3 months, the difference is only in the hormones contained and the time lag.
Regarding your question, because many things in the body are regulated by hormones, indeed among the common side effects of using hormonal birth control are weight gain, mood swings, irregular menstruation, and bleeding outside the menstrual cycle. But that doesn't mean these effects have to appear, so it doesn't matter if you keep your period.
What you need to pay attention to when using injectable birth control for the first time is that it usually takes about a week to work, so if it's been a month, it shouldn't be a problem. In addition, if you have recently given birth, exclusive breastfeeding for your baby can help you as a natural contraceptive. So, hopefully it answers your question.
