Hello Mas Jack,
1 month injection KB contains the hormones estrogen and progesterone. How it works 1 month injection KB is to prevent ovulation, thicken vaginal mucus so that it interferes with the movement of sperm, and modify the condition of the uterus so that the results of fertilization can not stick and develop.
The advantages of 1 month injection KB are:
Unlike birth control pills that must be taken every day, can be missed
Fertility can return quickly after cessation of birth control
The risk of bleeding outside menstruation is lower than that of 3-month injectable birth control
However, in addition to the advantages above, 1 month injection KB also has disadvantages namely:
Menstrual cycle disorders
The breast feels tight and painful
Causes mood swings
Does not protect from sexually transmitted infections
Menometrorrhagia or long periods (7 days) with excessive volume can arise due to the use of injectable birth control as well. Apart from the use of injectable birth control, menometrorrhagia can also be caused by:
Blood clotting disorders
Cancer of the uterus or cervix
What is feared from menometrorrhagia is a complication of anemia, which is a low level of red blood cells. Anemia is characterized by a pale appearance, the body feels weak, difficult to concentrate, heart palpitations. Immediately consult a doctor if you experience these complaints.
Observe menstrual changes in birth control in subsequent periods if complaints of menometrorrhagia greatly interfere with your activities, please consult an obstetrician to determine the type of contraception that is more suitable for you. In addition, the doctor can check the state of your reproductive organs to rule out the possibility of other abnormalities as mentioned above. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
