Hello, I’m a 3 month kb user.rnWhen I was scheduled for a re-injection, I was unable to go to the midwife, and it was pushed back a week later.rnAt the time of the scheduled injection, I had sex with my husband and the sperm was released in in.rnThe following month I didn’t have my period, I usually had regular periods as long as I used the 3-month injection.rnIn the second month, I experienced spots after I was tired from work, I thought I was going to menstruate, but the spots didn’t continue. A few days later I had spots again, I tested the pack, but the results were negative, now it’s been 2 weeks and I haven’t tested the pack again. now I often experience lower abdominal muscle cramps, is this hormonal influence or is there a possibility that I am pregnant,rnrnThanks for the reply.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The 3-month injection contraceptive contains the active composition of Depo Provera, which is a progestin hormone derivative that prevents pregnancy by preventing ovulation (rupture of a mature egg), thickening cervical mucus, and inhibiting the implantation process (implantation of the fertilized fetus into the uterine wall). Improper use of injectable contraceptives (eg late injections) does have the potential to cause pregnancy. The risk of pregnancy is greater if you have sexual intercourse during the delay in your injection, because to produce its effect in preventing pregnancy, injectable contraceptives generally take 5 to 7 days from the start of the injection.
In addition to being pregnant, the delay in menstruation, spotting, accompanied by lower abdominal cramps that you experience may also be caused by side effects of the injectable contraceptive itself, or also due to other causes, such as ovarian cysts, pelvic inflammation, urinary tract infections, constipation, and so on.
A negative test pack result may indicate that your current complaint is not related to pregnancy. However, to be sure, it is recommended that you do a retest in 3 to 7 days. In addition, also take the following efforts to make menstruation more regular:
Regular exercise Adequate sleep Eat more fruits and vegetables Avoid obesity, especially obesity Compress cramped stomach using warm compresses If menstruation still doesn't come for more than 3 months with a negative test pack result, don't hesitate to go directly to a specialist obstetrics and gynecology...
I hope this helps.
