An effective long-acting reversible method of contraception
An 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, shown to be 20 times more effective than short term contraceptive methods, such as the pill. You must make sure to return for an injection every 2-3 months, otherwise you risk the chance of becoming pregnant.
99% - If one hundred women used an injectable for a year and carried on with their normal sex life then only one of those women would fall pregnant during that period.
Injectables are available at all of our Centres locations and outreach teams.
