DMPA Sc. is a new, easy-to- use pre-filled contraceptive injection that prevents pregnancy for 3 months. DMPA Sc. contains a lower dose than in any other 3 months injection and comes with a very small needle so it is less painful for women. DMPA Sc. is a very convenient option for women who want a short method of contraception but don’t want to be bothered with taking pills every day, such as busy working women, young women and even women who are afraid of injections because the needle is very small. This method is very convenient and a woman only needs 4 shots to be protected for the whole year which makes it a popular choice for many. This method can also be used if a woman is breastfeeding once her baby is 6 weeks or older.
