How the injection works
There are three types of contraceptive injections in Pakistan:
- Depo-Provera – this lasts for 12 weeks and is usually given by a health professional into a muscle in your bottom, although sometimes may be given in a muscle in your upper arm.
- Sayana Press – this lasts for 13 weeks, is given under the skin (subcutaneously) in your abdomen or thigh and you would normally learn to do this yourself.
- Noristerat – this lasts for eight weeks and is less frequently used. It’s usually given by a health professional into a muscle in your bottom, although sometimes may be given in a muscle in your upper arm. It is usually used for short periods of time – for example, if your partner is waiting for a vasectomy.
