Substitute 3-month Injectable Birth Control Into 1 Month Injection Contraception?
I want to ask if you want to change the injectable birth control which is 3 months to 1 month, do you have to do it or not? You have to wait a long time after you get the KB injection 3 months ago, thanks
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
3-month injection KB is KB that contains progesterone hormone only, while 1-month injection KB is KB that contains a combination of estrogen and progesterone. 3-month injection KB is more recommended for use if you are breastfeeding a baby (because it does not affect milk production), but it has a disadvantage, one of which is that it can cause menstrual cycle disorders. 1-month injection KB is less likely to cause menstrual cycle disorders, but is not recommended for use by mothers who breastfeed their babies.
If you want to change the KB injection from 3 months to 1 month KB injection, then you can immediately resume the 1 month KB injection in the schedule you should have 3 months KB injection. You do not need to wait for your period to continue your family planning injection. Henceforth, if you want to do the next 1 month KB injection, you also don't need to wait for your period before you do the KB injection. You must do the KB injection according to the schedule given by your midwife or obstetrician. Make sure you have asked clearly about the possible side effects that can occur from each KB you want to use and consider carefully before you decide to use the KB.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
