The contraceptive injection contains progestogen and is injected into your body every 2 to 3 months, depending on the type. It is very effective at preventing pregnancy and is really great at stopping periods after a few injections. The downside is that once it's given, it's in for up to 3 months and cannot be removed or stopped before then.
