The Right Time For Birth Control Injections?
Oiyah, I had an injection on this 11 month and today I had my period, do I have to have another injection? Do you have to wait for the time to run out on the next 11 months? R nDoes menses indicate the birth control injection has ended?
Hello Yolanda, Thank you for the question.
The contraceptive injection is a contraceptive device that contains artificial hormones. The occurrence of menstruation does not indicate that the effects of birth control injections have ended. To determine when you should return to the birth control injection depends on which contraceptive injection you choose, the 1 month birth control injection or the 3 month birth control injection. The birth control injection is designed to work during this time; if you have a 1 month birth control injection, then you have to go back to the birth control injection once a month, as well as the 3 month birth control injection.
Giving birth control injections can have side effects that interfere with your menstruation, which can include bleeding outside the menstrual period, menstruation becomes heavier or longer, menstruation becomes less, or menstruation stops. However, I need to emphasize again, the occurrence of menstruation is not related to the effectiveness of birth control injections.
Please consult about this contraceptive to an obstetrician and gynecologist if you still have further questions.
Hope this information is helpful.
