Dear @>->-
You can get this at any contraceptive municipal clinic or GP - called Depo Provera, it is very effective and forms a "plug" in the mouth of the womb and makes the womb unfavourable for the inplantation of a fertilized egg. You should wait for at least 2 weeks before having unprotected sex and it can take up to 1 year to get fertile again after stopping it.

You can also go to your local municipal clinic or hospital where you can get the injection for free!

I may be able to help here. It's called DepoProvera. You have it every three months and in that time you will not have periods which is a HUGE plus for most women. You can get it from your clinic (most pharmacies have one), or your GP. I have no idea how much it costs, my medaid pays for mine. The injection is active immediately afterwards, and I found the best time to have your first injection is about ten days after your period started, or five to ten days after your last day. When I got it while menstruating, I spotted the rest of the three months, and couldn't have sex. It is said the injection is 99% effective. I was on Depo for about three years and it took me six months to get pregnant when I stopped.
