Hello,

the medication for injectable contraception has to be given only every 3 month (medroxyprogesteronacetate). I would suggest to visit your OB/GYN for it, but as it is an intramuscular injection, you can also ask him to teach you for doing it yourself.

Best regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele

My boyfriend is a medical resident and he reviewed the drug and everything about it including the benefits, side effects and precautions and he feels he can give it to me himself. He said I'm medically free, and have no health issues that could prevent me from using the injection.He is not a specialist or an OBGYN.He also prefers it over the pills. i just want to get some input, thank you.

Hello,

in this case I see no contradiction for you to use the injection method that way, your OB/GYN will confirm it too for sure.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
