DMPA-SC self-injection contraceptive continuation research brief

Subcutaneous DMPA (DMPA-SC) is an easy-to-use injectable contraceptive that is ideally suited for remote access and even self-injection. This brief describes research findings that women who self-injection DMPA-SC continue to use contraception longer than women who use intramuscular DMPA (DMPA-IM) administered by a health worker.
