Side Effects Of Forgetting 3 Months Birth Control Injection?
I mw ty, if I inject it for three months, but I forgot how to inject it again
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The contraceptive injection is a contraceptive method that works by injecting certain hormones into the body so that these hormones later interfere with the ovulation process or the release of a woman's egg. In Indonesia, there are two types of birth control injections, namely 1 month and 3 months, in which the 3 month birth control injection contains the hormone progestin, while one month contains progestin and estrogen.
Regarding your question, actually if done correctly, in the sense that according to the schedule, the effectiveness of this contraceptive method is able to protect women from pregnancy by not less than 99%. However, if the schedule is irregular, or if the injection is not prompted when the injection should be scheduled, research actually shows that women can be protected from 3 months to 2 years after injection. But again, the effectiveness has been greatly reduced.
With your condition now forgotten, all you can do is continue the injection according to your usual schedule or consult an obstetrician if you are still in doubt. Meanwhile, you can also use other contraceptive methods such as condoms. So, hopefully it answers your question.
