The Impact Of Being Late For 1 Day Taking KB Pills On Fertility?
Hello, want to ask me 1 day late taking KB pills will cause fertility? Even though I don’t have sex with my husband. R nAnd I usually take birth control pills at 7 pm, but sometimes I forget and just take it at 9 o’clock or before bed. Can I get pregnant?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Birth control pills are a method of contraception that uses hormones to delay pregnancy. In Indonesia, there are 2 types of birth control pills, namely those containing 21 items and 28 items. In terms of efficacy and content, they are the same. The difference is that which contains 28, 7 of them only contain flour and sugar. When used properly, the effectiveness of these pills can be up to 99.9%
Among the side effects of using birth control pills are:
Weight gain. Bleeding outside the period of menstruation. Headache and discomfort in the breasts. Decreased sex drive. Nausea. Mood swings
Regarding your question, it is true that one of the advantages and disadvantages of birth control pills is fertility which can return quickly if use is stopped or used irregularly, but missing using it in a day does not necessarily return it 100%. What you can do if you forget to consume it in a day is to consume 2 grains the next day. If you forget two days, then consume two grains today and two the next day, then you will return to your normal schedule.
If you forget more than that, you should consult your gynecologist, and use other contraceptives such as condoms for a while or avoid having sex first. And about missing a few hours would be fine.
But what you should know, although very rarely, any method of contraception that does not involve surgery can still get you pregnant. So you should pay close attention to how to use it. Or if you find it difficult, you can use contraceptives that you don't need to consume every day, such as implants or implants, IUDs, or condoms. You can find out more here. Hopefully answered your question.
