Take Birth Control Pills But Have Intercourse
Hello doc I want to ask if you are taking the mainstay of the pill and continue to have intercourse and take the rest of it like 3/5 days sperm can survive in the womb whether to continue taking the new / no yes? Please give a doc, thank you 🙏
Hello Adit, Thank you for the question.
First, it needs to be ascertained whether these birth control pills are consumed correctly. If it has been consumed correctly as directed by a doctor, then the remaining 3-5 tablets means that the user has entered the consumption of empty pills. When taking empty pills, the user will usually experience menstruation, so if intercourse is done before this, then the user is still protected from pregnancy (because afterwards it will menstruate). If after taking these birth control pills, users no longer want to continue the birth control pills, no problem; but keep in mind that if you stop the birth control pill then for further intercourse users are not protected from pregnancy. If the user still wants to postpone pregnancy it should continue to use birth control pills, be sure to consume according to doctor's recommendations. Or, if you don't want to use birth control pills but still want to postpone pregnancy, you can use other contraceptive methods such as condoms, birth control injections, birth control implants, or intrauterine devices (IUD) / spiral.
If the user is still in doubt whether they have taken the birth control pill correctly, do not hesitate to consult with the nearest general practitioner so that more information can be given regarding the use of birth control pills.
Hopefully this information helps you.
