Important information

Even if you choose the contraceptive injection method to prevent pregnancy, you will still need to use a condom to help prevent the transfer of sexually transmitted infections. Condoms can protect you from STI’s such as syphilis and gonorrhoea, both of which have increased in the last couple of years.
