The Possibility Of Pregnancy During Intercourse After 4 Days Of Pill Consumption?
Mmm, I used birth control pills, I started taking small yellow pills for 4 days after my first menstruation, my period lasted only 2 days, 4 days later I had intercourse without other contraceptives, can you get pregnant?
Hello Ms. Yuliati,
Usually birth control pills are effective after 7 days of use, where levels of hormones in the blood are sufficient to prevent pregnancy. During these 7 days, it is recommended to use a condom to be more effective. To find out whether you are pregnant or not, you need to know in advance your menstrual cycle so that the fertile period can be calculated. If your menstrual cycle is 28 days like a regular menstrual cycle, then the fertile period is likely to be days 11 to 16 calculated from the first day of menstruation, so if you have intercourse on the 8th day after the first day of menstruation, your chances of pregnancy are quite small.
Just continue to use your birth control pill in accordance with the instructions. If you are late for your period or are experiencing signs of pregnancy, you can do a test pack or see a gynecologist. You can also discuss other contraceptive options with your doctor if you are not comfortable with the use of birth control pills that must be taken every day or side effects. Although birth control pills are generally safe, in some women can cause side effects. Side effects of birth control pills include bleeding outside of menstruation / spotting, irregular menstruation, changes in body weight, dizziness and nausea.
