Our Contraceptive injections information is moving to Sexwise!
Sexwise is a new website by FPA, bringing you honest information about contraception, pregnancy, STIs and pleasure.
Visit our new-look Contraceptive injections information here.
Contraceptive injections contain a progestogen hormone which is similar to the natural progesterone produced by the ovaries.
There are three types of injection. DepoProvera and Sayana Press protect you from pregnancy for 13 weeks. Noristerat protects you for eight weeks; it’s not commonly used in the UK.
