The Effectiveness Of Preventing Pregnancy When Using Birth Control Pills And Injections Together?
But it’s still safe, right, preventing pregnancy … Even though the effect is like the one above, what the doctor explained …
Hello Mega, Thank you for the question.
Birth control injections and birth control pills are hormonal contraceptives used to prevent pregnancy. Both contain synthetic hormones that can inhibit ovulation (the release of a mature egg into the fallopian tube), thicken cervical mucus so that it is difficult for sperm to enter the uterus, and thicken the uterine wall. In these ways, both can prevent pregnancy. When used properly and according to doctor's recommendations, both of them are very effective at preventing pregnancy if you don't want to have a baby. Birth control injections and birth control pills can be consumed at any time, however, of course you are advised to consult with an obstetrician and gynecologist so that the doctor can examine you and assess whether the contraceptive method you choose is suitable for you. Birth control injections and birth control pills that are used on the first day of menstruation can provide immediate protection against pregnancy, but if you start using them at another time, you are advised to use a condom when having sex for 7 days until the hormones in the injection or pill work.
You are not advised to use two contraceptive methods at the same time, for example, taking birth control injections and birth control pills at the same time because of the side effects that can result from this combination, unless you mean to change the contraceptive method. If you switch from one contraceptive method to another, it is best if you consult your doctor first. You can change the use of birth control injections for 1 month to birth control pills. Usually the birth control pill should be taken at the time you have to receive the birth control injection in the following month. If you are in doubt, please consult your doctor directly so that he can provide a suitable explanation for you.
