Depo-Provera injection



The Depo-Provera injection contains a high dose of progestogen that stays in the body for 3 months after the injection is given by a healthcare professional. It is really great at stopping periods after a few injections. The downside is that once it's given, it's in for 3 months and cannot be removed or stopped before then.
