There are three types of contraceptive injections in the UK: Depo-Provera, which lasts for 12 weeks, Sayana Press, which lasts for 13 weeks, and Noristerat, which lasts for eight weeks.

Contraceptive injections contain a progestogen hormone which is similar to the natural progesterone that women produce in their ovaries.

REMEMBER: Condoms are the only contraception method to reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Condoms can protect you from STI’s such as syphilis and gonorrhoea, both of which have increased in the last couple of years.
