The cost of the Contraceptive Injection service that we offer at MUMS is £240.00. This includes the consultation and the injection and administering of the injection.
Commonly used contraceptive injections in the UK are Depo Provera and Sayana Press. They contain progestogen. They are effective for 13 weeks.
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.
