The Right Time To Inject Contraception After A Late Injection In The Previous Month?
Afternoon… I want to ask.. I usually inject 3 months of birth control. Well, last February I had to give the injection on February 10, but I was sick. So I had another injection on February 15. Next month of May…whether on May 8th or May 13th…thank you.waiting for the answer.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The 3-month injection contraceptive contains the active composition of the hormone Noresthistherone acetate, which is a derivative of the hormone progesterone whose function is to prevent pregnancy. This synthetic hormone works by modifying the balance of reproductive hormones in the body, its purpose is to thicken cervical mucus, prevent ovulation (rupture of a mature egg), and inhibit implantation (implantation of the fertilized fetus in the uterine wall).
Adhering to the schedule for KB injections is very important to maintain the effectiveness of the KB injections. Delayed birth control injections can potentially lead to an unplanned pregnancy.
Injectable KB is generally injected every 3 months, or if it is calculated by the day, then this KB is injected every 84 days (with 28 days being a normal menstrual cycle). So, if you had the previous birth control injection on 15 February 2018, then you will need to have the injection on 10 May 2018.
To maintain hormone levels in the body, as well as prevent potential forgetting, doctors generally recommend that you inject 1 to 3 days earlier than the scheduled injection. However, you should consult directly with your obstetrician regarding the right injection schedule, right?
I hope this helps.
