When I Have To Repeat The KB Injection Once A Month But I Haven’t Had My Period Yet, How Should I Do It?
I want to ask, I injected contraception for 1 month, last 9/2 and I should have injected it again tomorrow, 7/3, but how come it hasn’t been mens yet?
1 month KB injection is a hormonal contraceptive that contains the hormones progestin and estrogen. 1 month KB injection is effective in preventing pregnancy if done correctly and on time. The failure rate for regular family planning injections is less than 1%. Thus, the chances of your pregnancy being relatively small are less than 1% as long as you are not late for the KB injection.
Birth control injections have several side effects, one of which is a change in the menstrual cycle, menstruation can be late, no menstruation at all, bleeding outside menstruation, blood spots, or menstruation is less or even more than usual.
Complaints of blood spots that you experience, could be a side effect of family planning injections. However, these conditions can also be influenced by other things such as stress, fatigue, drastic weight changes, polycystic ovary syndrome, cysts, hormonal disorders, thyroid disease, and pregnancy.
Although the possibility of pregnancy is very small, but if you suspect you are pregnant, it never hurts to do a test pack first. Furthermore, you should inject family planning right on schedule and don't be late huh.
You can consult with your obstetrician first before continuing your family planning injection so your doctor can check the cause of the blood spot that you are experiencing in connection with the birth control injection or for other reasons. Your doctor can also provide you with advanced treatment and other contraceptive options if needed.
Meanwhile, to help expedite menstruation, you should get enough rest, exercise regularly, maintain vaginal hygiene, avoid stress, consume healthy and nutritious food, drink lots of water, and don't be late for further family planning injections.
Hope it helps you,
