Should Emergency Contraception Be Used With Birth Control Pills To Prevent Pregnancy After Having Sex?
Morning … I have been in contact with my boyfriend accidentally took out inside, then I suggested taking birth control pills, and then I got a suggestion to take a postinor, if after taking a postinor should I tell him to continue taking kb?
Postinor® is a brand of emergency contraception that contains high doses of hormones. The use of this drug does not need to be connected with birth control pills. Usually taken at least 72 hours after intercourse to be more effective. Keep in mind the use of emergency contraception can not frustrate fertilization that occurs, but only prevent conception.
The use of birth control pills generally starts on the 5th day of the menstrual cycle or it can be at any time. Birth control pills are taken every day at the same time to be more effective. Birth control pills only function properly when the hormone levels in the blood are sufficient, usually after the 7th dose (7 days). So while waiting for the birth control pill to react, for the first 7 days you should not have sex or use a condom as an additional contraceptive.
To use birth control pills and emergency contraception, it is better to consult with your doctor first. The use of hormonal drugs have side effects including dizziness, nausea, bleeding outside menstruation / spotting, and discomfort / pain in the breast.
At other times, if you and your partner are not ready to have children, you should avoid having sexual relations outside of marriage or use contraception such as birth control pills or condoms to prevent pregnancy.
