THE INJECTION – OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND – INTRODUCTION

A woman who dislikes the coil can at least have it taken out. This option is not available with injectable contraceptives; it is just a question of waiting for the effect to wear off. British women strongly dislike injections, but for many the prospect of one injection and no need to see a doctor for three whole months, or indeed do anything else about contraception, is irresistible. For this freedom from medical interference, and the equal freedom of feeling like a ‘nothing’ user, women will risk irregular menstruation, or even amenorrhoea. Most of these women express few anxieties about the method, their main aim is to get ‘the jab’, and beat a retreat back to privacy.
