@Dr_Paula I use the Sayana press, when I did my last injection there was a lot of blood so I had to stop and reinject the rest of the injection into another area. Am I still protected / does this affect my level of protection? Does this count as the full dose?

Hello @Aekgla

The manufacturers have said that they cannot guarantee its effectiveness if it is injected into two sites. You would need to use additional contraception for the duration of this injection until your next injection is due. If you have had unprotected sex recently then you should consider emergency contraception.

Many thanks
