Solution To Overcome Late Family Planning Injection?
Congratulations NIGHT, I want to ask the doctor, I have been through the KB injection for more than 1 week and I have not injected it until now, am I at risk of getting pregnant?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically late birth control injections can increase the chance of pregnancy. Late injection of up to 7 days is usually a delay that can still be tolerated. If it's been more than 7 days late and you have a history of sexual intercourse after being late, then you should have a prenatal checkup before continuing the family planning injection. After the family planning injection you will also be advised to use additional contraception for up to 7 days after the birth control program to make sure the birth control program is working. We recommend that you discuss it again with your midwife or obstetrician first.
Injectable birth control must be injected regularly at the scheduled time to work properly. If indeed you find it difficult to remember or follow this schedule, you should choose other methods of contraception that can last longer, for example implantation / implantation or an IUD, depending on your and your partner's planning about when you want to get pregnant.
