¿Cuánto tardan en hacer efecto los anticonceptivos?

4 mins read

Los anticonceptivos son una parte vital de tu atención sanitaria si eres sexualmente activa. La forma de control de la natalidad es una decisión importante, y uno de los factores que necesitas saber es cuánto tiempo necesitas esperar antes de que tu anticonceptivo te proporcione una protección total.

Desde los efectos secundarios hasta el método anticonceptivo más adecuado para ti, el control de la natalidad es una decisión importante. Veamos cómo funciona cada anticonceptivo, cuánto tarda en hacer efecto y cuándo ofrece protección total frente al embarazo.

Anticonceptivos hormonales

Los anticonceptivos hormonales actúan a varios niveles. Espesan el moco cervical para impedir que los espermatozoides atraviesen el útero, evitan que los óvulos se liberen en los ovarios para la fecundación y diluyen el revestimiento uterino para impedir la implantación si las acciones anteriores no tienen éxito. Esto requiere un periodo de tiempo para ajustar tus hormonas antes de que tengas cobertura contra el embarazo.

Píldoras anticonceptivas

Las píldoras combinadas te protegerán desde el primer día si empiezas a tomarlas durante los cinco primeros días de la regla. Esto no significa que tu periodo haya empezado, sino el primer día de tu ciclo. Si empiezas en cualquier otro momento del ciclo, utiliza un método de respaldo.

Los anticonceptivos orales que sólo contienen progestina (la minipíldora) son eficaces dos días después de empezar a tomar la píldora. Sin embargo, si te saltas una, tendrás que utilizar un método anticonceptivo de reserva durante otros dos días. Actúan más rápidamente, pero no hay margen de error.

El anillo vaginal y el parche anticonceptivo

Vaginal rings provides the same type of protection that birth control pills do. If you put it in on during the first five days of your menstrual cycle, you’re protected from day one. If you start at any other point in your cycle, use a backup method of birth control.

Patches also work similarly to the ring the pill. You can time it to start during the first day of your cycle, or if you wait longer, you’ll need to use other methods.

Inyecciones anticonceptivas

Injections are effective within 24 hours if you receive the injection any time during the first five days of your menstrual cycle. Any time after that and, like the rest, you’ll have to wait at least seven days for full protection against pregnancy.

Dispositivos intrauterinos

These long term birth control methods work by inserting a small device into the uterus. A copper IUD works by causing sperm to avoid the copper — thus avoiding the birth canal. Hormonal IUDs work by also thickening cervical mucus to prevent sperm from accessing the uterus and preventing the release of eggs with Progestin.

El cobre es eficaz de inmediato, independientemente del momento en que se inserte, pero los DIU hormonales deben insertarse durante la primera semana del ciclo menstrual para que sean eficaces. Si no es así, espere hasta siete días o utilice métodos anticonceptivos de respaldo.

Métodos de barrera

Los métodos de barrera -como los preservativos, los condones femeninos, los capuchones cervicales o los diafragmas- son eficaces de inmediato siempre que los utilices correctamente. Impiden que los espermatozoides accedan al útero para la fecundación. Algunos también utilizan métodos secundarios, como el espermicida, para matar a los espermatozoides antes de que puedan llegar al óvulo. Suelen ser los métodos de reserva que necesitamos mientras esperamos a que los anticonceptivos hormonales hagan pleno efecto.

Procedimientos de esterilización

La ligadura de trompas y la oclusión tubárica son dos métodos quirúrgicos de esterilización habituales. La ligadura de trompas requiere un periodo de espera de una semana para mayor seguridad, pero la oclusión de trompas no es efectiva inmediatamente. A diferencia de la ligadura, que corta las trompas de Falopio, la oclusión funciona mediante una microinserción en las trompas de Falopio que anima al cuerpo a cerrarlas de forma natural. Tendrás que esperar al menos tres meses.

Implantes

Los implantes anticonceptivos funcionan de forma similar a todos los demás métodos anticonceptivos hormonales. Haz coincidir los implantes con la primera semana de tu ciclo menstrual, o tendrás que esperar al menos siete días para que las hormonas de tu cuerpo se adapten.

Elegir el método anticonceptivo adecuado

Es esencial recibir asesoramiento médico de un proveedor de confianza como Great City Medical. Estamos listos con toda la información de salud que necesitará para tomar las mejores decisiones para las formas de control de la natalidad que se adapten a su estilo de vida y sus necesidades.

Repasaremos todo lo que necesitas saber sobre los efectos secundarios de los anticonceptivos, su eficacia y el tiempo que tendrás que esperar para que funcionen. También podemos trabajar contigo para decidir combinaciones de anticonceptivos que puedan ayudarte con otros problemas médicos.

Mantener relaciones sexuales sin protección con tu pareja de confianza no tiene por qué ponerte en riesgo de embarazo. Los anticonceptivos son una forma de controlar tu fertilidad, y la planificación familiar forma parte de tu estado de salud general. Podemos ayudarte a tomar la mejor decisión.

At first it was hard getting through to Great City by phone. I soon discovered the chat. I was verily informed about everything from the costs right down to the procedure, that being examination for immigration purposes. I was kept up to date by Antony all the way up until it was time to pick up my form. The staff were very friendly as well. I should also mention too that the cost was the most inexpensive out of all the places I checked.

They are very nice and friendly. The appointment didn’t take too long. The only thing I didn’t like is that I’m a transgender woman and all the time they used masculine pronouns which makes me feel uncomfortable. They could just try to be neutral or call me by my name instead.

I went to have a immigration physical exam. Prior to visit, the chat/email service via their website was clear on my existing vaccinations and what paperwork/proof that would be sufficient. The staff was transparent in the cost and what to expect for the actual physical. The visit went smooth and the waiting time was within 10- minutes. Highly recommended

My first time visiting this practice. They were very through, from intake, which was done by a Dr. that I assumed was a nurse because he was so young lol. I wound up seeing Jaime who is a GYN NP, she was awesome. They asked a lot of questions about my history, which I really appreciated. Labs and Sonogram are done on-site. I will be returning.
