Side Effects Of Delaying Injection?
Good evening, I want to ask, right? For 1 month I did not have sex with my husband, maybe for the next 2 months, but this time for me to get a family planning injection, but if I don’t get a family planning injection, is that allowed and there are no side effects. thank you
Hello Adinda, Thank you for the question.
KB injection is a hormonal contraceptive that aims to delay pregnancy. KB injections contain synthetic hormones. There are two types of KB injections, they are 1 month KB injection and 3 month KB injection; the difference only lies in the hormone content in it and the time of KB injection.
Which KB injection did you undergo, 1 month injection or 3 months injection? Do you and your husband still want to postpone having a baby? If yes, then you should still undergo the KB injection in order to maintain the effectiveness of KB protection. In addition, if you stop receiving family planning injections and then one day you will be in contact with your husband, then you will have to adjust the time to start the family planning injection. On and off use of birth control (based on when you spend time with your husband) can cause temporary menstrual disorders and can potentially interfere with contraceptive effectiveness.
My advice, you should consult with a specialist obstetrics and gynecologist to discuss what contraception is suitable for you and your husband if your husband is often in different places (for example, working outside the city). Your doctor may suggest the use of contraception that is more ideal for your condition such as implanted birth control or a longer-lasting intrauterine device (IUD).
Hopefully this information is useful.
