The injection
Hi Doc,

Can one get pregnant on the injection? My brothers girlfriend fell pregnant and she is told my mom that she was taking the injection every month, but she is 5 weeks pregnant.

All contraceptives have a small failure rate. The injectable is used either every two months or every three months.
