If it is safe to do so, our specialists will give you the contraceptive injection.we will hand over the contraceptive pills to you by the end of the appointment.

Step 3

Come back in 12-14 weeks for a repeat dosage.

This can take between 15-20 minutes. You will have enough time to discuss any questions or worries you may have.

Who will I see?

All contraceptive injection appointments will be with a  sexual health specialist. With extensive experience, and knowledge, in the field, you are in safe hands.

All females appointments will have a female chaperone, if necessary.

Contraceptive Injection FAQs

What is a Contraceptive injection?

The Contraceptive Injection is injected in the muscle of the buttock. It works for upto 12-14 weeks, in a manner similar to the contraceptive pill.

Side effects

The main side effect of the contraceptive injection is: changes in the bleeding pattern.

Other common side effects include: headaches, skin changes, mood changes, bloating, reduction of libedo, abdominal pain and breast tenderness.

Usually by the time 3 doses have been given, the women does not have any periods.

This is perfectly normal, but could also include irregular bleeding/spotting from light to heavy.

Fertility delay can also be caused by this method, so if planning a pregnancy, advice is to  swap to alternative method 1 year prior to conception.

  • Progestogen-only injectable use is associated with a small loss of bone mineral density, which is usually recovered after discontinuation.

How does it work?

The contraceptive injection works in 3 ways:

  1. It Inhibits ovulation
  2. It thins the endometrium (lining of the uterus)
  3. It thickens cervical mucus to prevent sperm entering the uterus

Simply put, the contraceptive pill prevents the body from releasing an egg, or if it does, the sperm will not be able to reach the egg or a fertilised egg will be unable to implant in the womb.

When should I take it?

You should take a contraceptive injection once every 12-14 weeks, by a specialist to administer it.


Very professional service from Clarewell Clinics who have looked after me with the greatest of respect over the last year. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone with a sexual health problem, especially if you have been to other GP/doctors!

Julie at the leicester clinic is the most incredible lady. She defused what was a very stressful situation for me into a calm easy process that took less than half an hour. After my Local GP had pretty much refused to take my coil out despite numerous attempts, I found Julie at the Clarewell Clinic whom was more than happy to remove this and advise me correctly, something which my GP did not do. From now onwards for any advice and/or future contraception I will be visiting the Julie at the Clarewell clinic. Thank you so so much again Julie! You are an amazing lady ❤️

I absolutely cannot recommend Clarewell Clinics enough. This Tuesday just gone, I attended clinic for some concerns I had and saw Julie. Other reviews that I had read previously had all praised Julie, and after spending an hour with her on Tuesday afternoon, I was and still am overwhelmed with gratitude that I had been booked with her. Julie made my very worrying situation much easier than I could have ever imagined. She gave me every bit of information I needed, answered every question I had (even if I'd asked it already) with patience, kindness, and honesty, and she treated me with a wonderful amount of respect. I shall always be grateful to her for making my burden a lot lighter to carry. Thank you so much Julie, thank you so much Clarewell Clinics.

Dr. Malu really listened to my fears and took his time during our consultation. I never felt rushed and it was one of the best doctor’s appointments I have ever had (I was nervous for the appointment obviously). The premises are humble (as I believe they are fairly new) BUT the service was impeccable..!!! The man working reception was extremely polite and had a calming presence. The nurse was extremely pleasant, helpful and calming as well. The doctor and nurse seemed like a team whose purpose was to help me and I really appreciated that... I felt like everyone genuinely cared about me and I can’t thank them enough... highly recommend.

First time used a private clinic with no stasifactory resolution of my concerns with my usual doctors. It was a massive decision for me as I had never gone private before. I was a bit apprehensive about the how much this may all cost me. Team in this clinic are professionals and truly caring. They explain the things to you every step of the way and only did tests and treatment after seeking my permission. I wanted to have some tests done but they advised against them with an explanation why they are unnecessary.I will recommend this clinic.

Lovely little clinic in the heart of Birmingham. Went in for a Hepatitis booster jab when GP/Occupational Health told me to wait for 2 months. All was done so swiftly, I didn’t feel anything even though I am slightly needle-phobic! The doctor there was such a genuinely lovely man. We sat and chatted for a while after it was done so that he could make sure I was okay before I left. Very professional yet still informal.
