The Possibility Of Getting Pregnant If Having Direct Sex After Taking The Birth Control Pill?
I want to ask, after 6 months I took off the injectable contraception for 1 month I moved to microgynon birth control pills, when I had my last menstrual day before I lay down, well tomorrow night again, but then my husband invited an intimate relationship, is there a chance I could get pregnant? Thank you for the answer
Hello Ms. Euis, thank you for asking.
When used properly, the failure rate of birth control pills based on WHO research is around 0.1 pregnancies per 100 women over 12 months of use. But if the use of birth control pills is not painstaking, the failure rate can reach 6-8 even 15 pregnancies per 100 women.
So, even though the number is small, the possibility of pregnancy still exists with the use of birth control pills. Because you have only used it for 2 days, it is better if you want to have sex in the first week of using birth control pills, you use the method of dual contraception, which is assisted with the use of other contraceptive methods, generally the recommended use of condoms. This is suggested to help reduce the likelihood of pregnancy because the fertility cycle is still uncertain because of the start of the pill.
I hope this helps.
