What to Expect from Depo-Provera?
Depo-Provera is a fairly new contraception and you will need to prepare yourself first and discuss about the contraception with your doctor before using it. You should discuss with your doctor about the starting date of the injection, and you will have to take a pregnancy test first to ensure that you are not pregnant.
The doctor will clear the injection site with an alcohol pad and then inject you with Depo-Provera. It is recommended that you use backup birth control contraception for a week after your first injection, to ensure that there no risk of you getting pregnant.
