Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection

Welcome to the Family Planning, Fertility, and Sexual Health Service at Bath Avenue Medical Centre in Dublin.
Our team of medical experts is committed to providing you with the highest quality of care and services. Our Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection is one of the most reliable methods of birth control available today.

Depo-Provera is a hormonal contraceptive injection that is administered every 12 weeks. It contains the hormone progestogen, which works by preventing ovulation, thickening the cervical mucus to block sperm, and thinning the uterine lining to make implantation less likely. It is an extremely effective form of contraception, with a failure rate of less than 1%.

At Bath Avenue Medical Centre, we understand that every woman’s healthcare needs are unique. Our healthcare providers will work with you to determine if Depo-Provera is the right choice for you. We will discuss your medical history, any current medications you are taking, and any concerns you may have about the injection. Our goal is to help you make an informed decision about your reproductive health.

If you decide to proceed with the Depo-Provera injection, the process is simple and straightforward. The injection is given in the arm or buttock, and the appointment takes no longer than 15 minutes. After the injection, you can immediately resume your normal activities. You will need to return for another injection every 12 weeks to maintain protection against pregnancy.

It is important to note that Depo-Provera does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). We encourage all of our patients to consider practising safe sex by using a barrier method such as a condom in conjunction with the injection.

The cost of the consultation/administration of the Depo-Provera injection at Bath Avenue Medical Centre is €70. We believe that everyone should have access to affordable, high-quality healthcare, which is why we strive to keep our services accessible to all. For this reason also, Depo-Provera is available free of charge to patients eligible for the HSE Contraception Scheme for patients aged 18 – 26.

In conclusion, the Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection is an effective and reliable method of birth control that is available at Bath Avenue Medical Centre in Dublin. Our team of healthcare providers is dedicated to providing you with personalised care that meets your unique needs. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please don't hesitate to contact us.
