The Possibility Of Getting Pregnant After Having Intimate And Late Family Planning Injection?
At night, I want to ask, I am late for 7 days of birth control because I forgot but I have sex. There is a possibility of pregnancy, right?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm in advance, what family planning injection you use (is it a 3-month birth control injection or one-month injection) and on what day are you late for your family planning injection?
If you use 3-month KB injections, then a delay of up to 2 weeks from your injection schedule can still be tolerated, while if you use a 1-month KB injection, then a delay of 7 days from your injection schedule can still be tolerated. What is meant by being tolerated here is if you are late to re-inject up to 7 days or 14 days (as mentioned above), then it is very likely that sexual intercourse will not cause pregnancy and you can continue the KB injection as soon as you remember without need to do a prenatal examination or use additional safeguards after birth control.
If you have sexual intercourse less than 7 days after the delay, then you are most likely still protected from pregnancy. Make sure you don't forget your injection schedule again to reduce the risk of an unexpected pregnancy. If indeed you have difficulty remembering the injection schedule, then consider using other types of contraceptive methods such as implant birth control or an IUD that can last longer than injectable birth control.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
