There is a KB injection that is 1 month (every 4 weeks) and there is also a 3 month (every 12 weeks), 1 month injection KB usually contains a combination of estrogen and progesterone synthetic hormones, while 3-month injection KB contains synthetic hormone progesterone only. This hormonal birth control affects the condition of hormones in the body so that it can cause menstrual cycles to be disrupted, a person can experience continuous menstruation or may not menstruate at all. In addition, hormonal changes due to family planning injections also often cause excessive vaginal discharge in women. Generally not dangerous because it is a side effect of the KB injection itself. Leucorrhoea is usually clear, transparent and odorless. In addition to the influence of hormonal contraception, this vaginal discharge normally comes out as vaginal lubricant especially before menstruation, during ovulation, breastfeeding, sexually stimulated, when stressed, and so on.
