Contraceptive injection (Depro-Provera)

Contraceptive injection (Depro-Provera)

The contraceptive injection is a reversible and very effective contraception. It is an quarterly progestin injection and does not contain any estrogen. This could be the best choice for women who finds it hard to follow a daily, weekly, or monthly routine.

How does it work?

A health care professional will inject the substance on the upper arm or on the buttocks every 12 to 13 weeks, 4 times a year. The progestin injected will prevent the ovaries from releasing the ovum and will thicken the cervical mucus, making it difficult for sperms to reach the ovum. It also changes the internal wall of the uterus, which makes it difficult for the ovum implantation.
