The Possibility Of Getting Pregnant If Having Intercourse When Missed 3-month KB Injection Schedule?
it’s my first time KB I injected 3 months ago, so I continued to forget to give back the injection again, and it’s been a week. Is it like that can get pregnant if made brhubngan …
Hello, thanks for the question to HealthReplies.com.
Injectable birth control consists of two types, some containing one type of hormone, and some containing a combination of two hormones. For third-month injections, it contains one type of hormone, the hormone progesterone. This hormone serves to thicken mucus in the mouth of the uterus, making it difficult for sperm to meet with eggs, prevent the formation of eggs (ovulation) and also cause thinning of the uterine wall, so it is unable to support pregnancy.
If there is a delay in KB injections up to 1 week, some sources say fertilization can occur and cause pregnancy if the KB injection is delayed 5 days to 5 weeks, but the condition depends on the hormone levels of each individual, so it cannot be ascertained whether to get pregnant or not if you have sex.
However, family planning injection should be in accordance with a predetermined schedule and must be organized to prevent the possibility of pregnancy. You should also consult directly with the nearest obstetrician or midwife and do the test pack yourself before consulting.
Prevention can be done:
1. Sexually use a condom to avoid communicable diseases
2. Having sex outside the fertile period to reduce the chance of getting pregnant
3. sexual intercourse with interruptus coitus (excreting sperm outside the genitals)
So hopefully useful :)
