The Relationship Between Menstrual Schedule And Timing Of Switching To Use Of Birth Control Pills?
Good morning, in my previous question I asked about how to switch kb injections to kb pills. And the answer from one of the doctors here is that I have to take kb pills when the injection is scheduled for the following month. The scheduled date for my injection is on September 20 … r n r nThe question is, usually a week before the injection schedule I will definitely get menstruation … but if this time I have not received men, do I still have to switch pills at the 20th ?? I was confused because the word bida where I drank it after I was clean from menstruation … but the doctor said here I had to drink at the next injection schedule without having to wait for menstruation … r n r nAnd the next question, the pill kb There are 21 active pills and 7 days of rest to get menstruation … if for example in 7 days when we are free from the pill but we don’t get menstruation, are we safe to hang out with a partner … r n r nThank you in advance and apologize if the question is too long
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Before explaining about the proper procedure for using birth control pills, you need to know first how birth control pills work.
Birth control pills contain synthetic hormones, which can be progesterone alone, or a combination of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. This synthetic hormone, if consumed properly, can cause modifications to the balance of reproductive hormones in the body. As a result, ovulation (the rupture of a mature egg) can be inhibited, cervical mucus will become thicker, and the implantation process (implantation of the fertilized egg into the uterine wall) can be prevented. You can get this protective effect against pregnancy from 5 to 7 days after taking birth control pills regularly.
It's okay to switch from injectable birth control to birth control pills. However, to do this, you need to check with your doctor first. Although they can be found easily in pharmacies and health stores, birth control pills are not an over-the-counter drug class that can be taken carelessly without a doctor's prescription. There are also several conditions for someone who is not recommended to use birth control pills, including women who suffer from uncontrolled hypertension, frequent relapsing migraines, disorders related to blockage of blood vessels, or also have a history of allergies to components in the birth control pill itself.
Therefore, you should first check with a doctor or obstetrician. If you are the right candidate to take birth control pills, then the doctor himself will explain the procedure for consumption. In general, birth control pills should be taken every day at the same time, regardless of your menstrual schedule. However, you need to remember, as mentioned above, taking birth control pills is only effective in providing protection against pregnancy if it has been done for more than 5-7 days. Therefore, when you first use birth control pills, it is advisable not to have sexual intercourse or to use additional contraceptive methods (such as condoms or diaphragms) in the first 1 week.
