Hello Zulfaiz, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
3-month injection of contraception, 1-month injection of contraceptives, or birth control pills are classified as hormonal birth control. Basically, hormonal birth control can be divided into 2 types. Hormonal contraceptives containing progesterone alone, for example are 3-month injection contraceptives, implant contraceptives, progestin only birth control pills (mini pills), and contraceptives which contain a combination of progesterone and estrogen, for example the 1-month injection contraceptive and combination birth control pills.
Hormonal birth control that contains the hormone progesterone alone is usually more likely to cause side effects such as disruption in the menstrual cycle (menstrual cycles become irregular or disappear altogether, menstruation becomes less or more, menstruation becomes shorter or even longer). Hormonal birth control that contains a combination of hormones usually causes less disruption in the menstrual cycle, but menstrual cycle disorders can still occur in some women who use this type of birth control.
In a case like yours, the effects of menstrual cycle disorders can still occur after using hormonal birth control, especially if you use birth control alternately as you do. We recommend that before you use hormonal birth control, you should carefully consider all the advantages, disadvantages and potential side effects caused by each contraceptive. You should also discuss with your obstetrician or midwife before using hormonal birth control. Hormonal birth control, especially the type of combined hormonal birth control, has several contraindications that must be considered, meaning that this type of contraceptive should not be given in certain conditions.
