Sayana Press

Sayana Press is a Long-Acting Reversible Contraceptive (LARC) injection that gives you 13 weeks of effective contraception. During the COVID-19 pandemic we are switching patients currently receiving the Depo-Provera to an alternative contraception method such as Sayana Press in an aim to reduce footfall within the building and to support those patients that are self isolating.

If your GP/Nurse has discussed this swap with you then please find below further information on Sayana Press to enable you to make an informed decision as to whether this is the right option for you.
