The Possibility Of Getting Pregnant During Intercourse After The Birth Control Injection?
I want to ask, I just got married on May 7 and then I had sex but the sperm didn’t come out inside. Then I injected KB on the 9th for the first time and before 24 hours we had sex but used a condom and didn’t use but still sperm did not come out of whether there was a possibility of getting pregnant. I still want to postpone it
Hello, good morning Mutia.
Coitus interuptus (interrupted intercourse) is a natural contraceptive method that often fails and causes pregnancy the most. This happens because the pre-ejaculatory fluid (fluid that comes out before ejaculation) can contain sperm which can lead to pregnancy. Condoms have a success rate of 80-98% percent in preventing pregnancy, the failure rate can still occur, for example due to a torn condom, or late use of a condom (using a condom right before ejaculation) so that the pre-ejaculatory fluid produced can still cause pregnancy. Meanwhile, the success rate of hormonal contraceptives (pills, oral contraceptives, and implants / implants) to prevent pregnancy reaches 90%.
In your case, where you have used the 1 month injection of contraceptive, plus your partner uses a condom and continues to have intercourse, then the chances of getting pregnant are very small. However, we cannot say for sure that it is impossible for you to get pregnant, because as we have mentioned above, neither method has a 100% success rate for preventing pregnancy.

That's all, I hope this helps.
