Gynecologist Dr. Emery Nimubona says that one should have no difficulty getting pregnant again as fertility will return almost immediately after discontinuing any birth control method, with the exception of what is known as injectable depot-medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA).
A contraceptive injection is administered every three months, which allows the user to not worry about pregnancy daily.
With this contraception, it may take a while before you can conceive once you stop using it.
Dr. Nimubona told IGIHE that a person using this contraceptive would have to wait at least a year after discontinuing this method to plan their pregnancy.
You have the liberty not to worry about contraceptives for months and still get to be fertile only a year after discontinuing this birth control.
This remains one of the most used contraceptives in Africa, especially by women who do not wish for society or their families to be aware that they are on birth control.
Hormonal contraception comes with known side effects. So, it is crucial to speak with a medical professional before using any contraceptives and understand these effects.
