Hello, Isma khoerunnisa, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
KB pill is a contraceptive that contains hormones that can prevent pregnancy. Birth control pills should be taken regularly every day at the same time, so that the levels of these pregnancy hormones remain constant in the body. Forgetting or missing a dose of birth control pills can increase the risk of pregnancy.
If you forget to take your birth control pill within 12 hours, keep taking the missed pill as soon as you remember. If you forget to take it for 24 hours, immediately take the birth control pill when you remember as many as 2 pills at a time. If you forget to take birth control pills for more than 24 hours, immediately take the birth control pill according to the day but its effectiveness in preventing pregnancy will decrease, so avoid sexual intercourse or use a condom for 7 days after that. There is a chance that you may have to take birth control pills from the start so consult your doctor first.
Next time, set an alarm every day to find out what schedule you are taking your birth control pills. Or if you find it difficult to take your medication regularly every day, there are several alternative methods of birth control that don't really require the routine of taking medication every day, for example, 3-month injection, IUD, or implants. You can read and read about the choice of family planning methods in the article on “KB methods” and discuss it with your husband and midwife / doctor.
To check if you are pregnant or not, you can use a test pack that can be purchased at a pharmacy. In addition, here is an article on pregnancy signs that can be read for additional information.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
