Birth Control Shot

The shot contains the synthetic progestin and is effective for 90 days. A woman must come to the clinic to get the injection.

Are you afraid of needles? If so, maybe the Depo shot isn’t for you. Each shot keeps you covered for three months. It contains progestin, a hormone that prevents your ovaries from releasing eggs, and thickens your cervical mucus which then helps block sperm from joining the egg.
