Contraceptive Injection

The contraceptive injection works by slowly releasing the hormone progestogen into the body to prevent ovulation (release of an egg).

The contraceptive injection works by slowly releasing the hormone progestogen into the body to prevent ovulation (release of an egg).
It must be given every 12 weeks otherwise it becomes ineffective, so it is important to return to a Marie Stopes International clinic or your local doctor for the next injection on time.
Irregular bleeding is the most common side effect but many women will have lighter or no periods with continued use. You should not use this method of contraception if you do not want your periods to change.
It is the only contraceptive that can delay your return to normal rates of fertility so might not be a good choice if you want to fall pregnant in the next year or so. Possible weight gain is also a consideration, as is possible decrease in bone density, which reverses when the injections are stopped. It offers no protection against sexually transmitted infections and HIV.
Contraceptive Injection is 99% effective.
