Providing 1-3 months of protection from unplanned pregnancies

An effective, short-term and reversible method of contraception
A contraceptive injectable contains a hormone that is injected into the body that stops eggs being released.

Injectables are a very effective method of contraception when used correctly.

To continue being effective, you must make sure to return for an injection every 2-3 months, otherwise you risk the chance of becoming pregnant.

Injectable advantages

Injectables offer several advantages as a long-acting, reversible method of contraception.

  • The procedure is very quick and painless
  • Provide up to 12 weeks of very effective contraception
  • May help with heavy periods
  • These benefits come from the correct use of an injectable when administered by a trained provider
  • If using an injectable, you should also make sure to follow any product manufacturer instructions.

Things to consider

When deciding if an injectable is right for you, here are a few quick facts you should consider:

  • Some women may find they have spotting and bleeding for the first few weeks, but this usually settles down
  • Periods may stop, but this is nothing to worry about
  • Fertility may take up to a year to return after stopping
  • Will not protect from STIs or HIV
  • As it is an injection, if you have any symptoms, such as bleeding, you cannot reverse this method immediately.
