Transferring 3 Months Injection To The Pill?
Hello I am a mother of 1 child, I am 22 years old. My child is 19 months old. Since my birth I use KB injections every 3 months. But since my skin has become dry and dull, black spots have also appeared on my face. My neighbors said it was indeed an injection effect. Is it true? And if I want to move to the pill, how do I do it? I last injected 17 February and again later 2 May. Thank you in advance
Thank you for the question.
It is true, because of the content of synthetic hormones in it, some 3-month injection users can experience changes in their skin, which is more dull, dry, often itchy, black spots appear, and also prone to breakouts. Side effects are often not dangerous as long as they are handled properly. But indeed, in some cases, these side effects can also be very disturbing appearance, and difficult to cure. Therefore, not all types of contraception are suitable for everyone's use.
In addition to the effects of the injectable birth control that you use, your skin condition can also occur because it is influenced by certain skin types, inappropriate use of skin care products, excessive exposure to sunlight, lack of drinking, unbalanced nutritional intake, allergies or irritation to substances that come in contact with skin, aging, and so on.
Birth control pills, like 3 months injectable birth control, also contain synthetic hormones, but with different types. If a pure complaint on your skin arises because of the injection, it is not impossible that the complaint will recur if you switch to birth control pills. In addition, as mentioned above, not all types of contraception are suitable for everyone to use. So, we do not recommend that you switch between contraception carelessly for your own good.
Better, check yourself first to the doctor or obstetrician to be given the right solution, yes. In addition, so that your skin problems are resolved, you can also consult a doctor or dermatologist nearby.
So that complaints on your skin subsides, you should first consume lots of water, fruits, and vegetables. In addition, wash your face morning and evening with a cleansing soap containing moisturizers and salicylic acid, dry with a clean towel, use a moisturizer and sunblock, and don't overuse cosmetics. In addition, you are also required to maintain good personal hygiene, do not carelessly use skin care products without consulting first to the doctor, getting enough sleep, and always live a healthy lifestyle so that your skin's health is more awake.
Hope this helps ...
