Contraception & Family Planning

The contraceptive injection – Your contraception guide

The contraceptive injection (Depo-Provera & Sayana Press) releases the hormone progestogen into your bloodstream to prevent pregnancy

Depo-Provera lasts for 13 weeks, sayana Press also lasts for 13 weeks and is a newer type of injection.

Eastwood Primary Care Centre will be prescribing the Sayana Press injection for patients and the practice nurse team will give instructions and training to patients at the surgery in clinic by appointment, so that patients will be able to self-administer this injection in the future at home.

The Sayana Press link below will give you access to videos online to demonstrate how to use the injection; there are frequently asked questions and tips but, if you have any questions or concerns that you need medical guidance for, please contact Eastwood Primary Care Centre and request a telephone call back from the Practice Nurse.
