Annual contraception medication reviews – Contraceptive pills and injections

If you are receiving a repeat prescription for your contraception we will review this annually, and send you an online questionnaire to make sure it is still safe to prescribe for you. We will review your answers, and contact you if we need more information. 

Injectable contraceptions: http://sexwise.org.uk/contraception/contraceptive-injections

After an initial GP appointment to prescribe your injections, nurses give Depo provera injections in clinic, or we can arrange to teach you to use Sayana Press at home. This is the same hormone as in the depo-provera injection, but the injection goes under the skin rather than into a muscle. It can be given easily at home by yourself or your partner four times a year. Here is a clear video demonstration of self administration of Sayana Press
