KB injection is a hormonal contraceptive which is effective in preventing pregnancy. There are KB injections for 1 month (containing progestin and estrogen hormones) and 3 months KB injections (containing only progestin hormones).
KB injections should be done on days 1-5 of menstruation. If done at this time, after menstruation, the contraceptive injection is immediately effective in preventing pregnancy. You and your husband do not need to use condoms after the contraceptive injection is effective.
However, it can be done at any time, even if you are not menstruating. It's just that, if you do KB injections when you are not menstruating, you must first make sure that you are not pregnant, for example by doing a test pack first. Then it takes about 5-7 days after the birth control injection to effectively prevent pregnancy.
Therefore, if you take a contraceptive injection when you are not menstruating, you and your husband should use additional contraception such as condoms for the first week as a double protection measure. After 1 week, then you and your husband can have sex without a condom.
