contraseptive injection
Hi

I am 23 years old. I have been married for 2 years. In these 2years I havent been using contraseptive methods frequently.

Me and my husband is going on a island vacation in a weeks time, and my date for starting menstruating will be on the vacation.

I was wondering if I will be able to go for a injection before or if I can only have the injection when I am menstruating.?

Thank you
Shylo

If you are on the Pill, just skip the placebos. The injection is not a reliable way of stopping periods, as many women bleed irregularly for the first month or two after the injection.
