The Relationship Between The Fertile Period And The Change In The Type Of Injectable Contraception?
Afternoon.. if you have used KB injection for 1 month, is it still fertile?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The fertile period is defined as the period around ovulation, namely the rupture of a mature egg. At this time, sexual intercourse has the greatest potential to cause pregnancy because the possibility of an egg cell to meet a sperm cell is very high.
The use of contraception, including 1-month injectable contraception, is intended to prevent pregnancy. One-month injection KB works to prevent pregnancy, one of which is by inhibiting ovulation. Therefore, indirectly, you no longer have a fertile period. As long as this injectable KB is used properly, i.e. according to the correct schedule of injection recommendations, then this KB is very effective in preventing pregnancy, even up to 99% more. And if you have undergone injectable birth control correctly, then you do not need to limit sexual intercourse to prevent pregnancy.
However, you need to know that to work effectively to prevent pregnancy, 1-month birth control injections take 5 to 7 days from the start of the injection. Therefore, if you are a woman who has just used KB injections for 1 month, it is advisable not to have sexual intercourse in the first week after the injection. Or, you can continue to have sex, but with the help of additional contraception as protection, such as condoms.
I hope it's clear enough...
