Sayana Press - contraceptive injection

Do you feel happy, safe and confident to self-inject? The Sayana Press contraceptive injection could be for you.

Sayana Press is a contraceptive injection that women can give to themselves to prevent pregnancy. It's given under the skin, at the front upper thighs or abdomen. The injection releases medication that runs through your bloodstream over a period of 13 weeks. So, just one small injection every 13 weeks will give you effective contraception.

The needle is very small and full instructions and guidance on self-injecting will be offered by our team. For more information you can read the Sayana Press guide to self-injecting. If you are suitable for this method of contraception and happy and confident to self-inject, we will provide you with everything you need to administer your own injections.

This method is becoming increasingly popular - it gives women who are happy, feel safe and confident to self-inject, control and ownership over their contraception. You don't need to visit a clinic regularly and you don't need to remember to take medication each day.

Watch this video to see if the Sayana Press contraceptive injection is right for you - like all contraceptive methods there are possible side effects to Sayana Press.

The Sayana Press contracetive injection is available to women from any of our Sexual Health Wirral clinics. You don't need an appointment - this form of contraception is available at our walk-in and wait clinics. Alternatively, you can book an appointment online.
