Depo shot injection

A Depo-Provera shot, or 'Depo shot' for short, is a birth control Youngstown Ohio method for women made up of a hormone similar to progesterone. It is given as an injection by a doctor into the woman's arm or buttocks. Each birth control shot provides protection against pregnancy for up to 12 to 14 weeks, but the shot must be received once every 12 weeks (3 months) to provide full protection. For more information on this birth control option, or birth control side effects, contact Dr. Hill’s office.
