Effectiveness and Mode of Action
It is a very effective method of contraception – over 99% effective
It mainly acts by preventing the ovaries releasing an egg (ie prevents ovulation). It also thickens the mucus from the cervix, making it difficult for the sperm to enter the womb and thins the lining of the uterus, thus preventing a fertilised egg to implant.
Depo Provera is injected into a muscle, usually in the buttock or the front of the thigh, by a health care professional
Sayana Press is injected just under the skin of the front of the thigh or the abdomen. It can be given by a health care professional, or you can give it yourself at home. We will teach you how to give yourself the injection.
In the first instance we organise a consultation for you which can be remote or face to face with our Gynaecologist who will discuss with you the benefits, risks and the procedure of the method.
