The Right Time To Change The IUD KB After 3 Months Injection KB?
, I want to ask, I still have a 3-month injection contraceptive period because my weight is increasing. I want to change to an IUD or a spiral, can I do it if I am still in the 3-month family planning period, I can immediately replace it with a Spiral, without having to wait for the 3-month birth control program to finish?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Basically it doesn't matter if you switch from injectable to spiral birth control. Even if it needs to be postponed, the reasons for delaying using spiral birth control are the same regardless of whether you previously used birth control or not, which is that you should not be pregnant. Because putting a spiral during pregnancy or being suspected of being pregnant will lead to a miscarriage or pregnancy outside the womb which is dangerous for both the mother and the fetus.
Then for your own time you also don't have to wait for the birth control injection to run out, you can immediately put it in with the help of the nearest obstetrician. Another thing to note is that spiral birth control is recommended on the 3-4th day of menstruation in order to reduce pain when inserted, but this is not mandatory.
So our advice to you, is to consult your obstetrician, so you can check your pregnancy first (keep in mind, although it is very small, the possibility of getting pregnant even though you are on injection contraceptive is there), and if it is confirmed that it is not pregnant, you can ask to be paired with spiral birth control, which includes clarifying the reasons why you want to switch contraception. So, hopefully it answers your question.
