The Possibility Of Pregnancy If You Forget To Take Birth Control Pills After Intercourse?
Hello i am irene I want to ask, after having sex I immediately menstruated and took the birth control pill 3 days later, when my period was complete, and I forgot to take the birth control pill 5 days, what is the high or low likelihood for pregnancy?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Birth control pills are pills containing hormones that function to delay pregnancy. To be able to work properly, this pill must be routinely consumed and for first use, sexual intercourse should be avoided in the initial 7 days, or even better during a series of one month of first use. If you still want to have sex, it is recommended to use other contraceptives such as condoms.
Among the advantages and disadvantages of birth control pills is that it's easy to have children again. For those who have already decided to be ready to return to have more children, simply stop using it and it doesn't take long to get back fertile. For those who actually do not want to have children, if they have difficulty taking medication regularly, pregnancy can occur.
Regarding your condition, if you take the pill for the first time, it can be said the effect has not worked to delay your pregnancy. But if you see that after having sex right away, your chances of getting pregnant are very small. Because it means that in order to get pregnant, your husband's sperm cells must be able to survive in the uterus during your period, and still wait a few more days to enter your fertile period. In fact, the age of sperm in the womb is only an average of 7 days. So when talking about the possibility, the possibility is very small. So, hopefully answering your question.
