Freedom Inject is a hormonal injection received in the arm and given once every 3 months. It works primarily by preventing the release of eggs from the ovaries (Ovulation). Each injection prevents pregnancy for three months with a one-month grace period. This method is fantastic for privacy. Your doctor will give you the first injection at any time during your period. Upon discontinuing use, you can become pregnant after at least 7 to 10 months.
During the first few months of taking the injectable, you may experience irregular bleeding, as well as longer and heavier periods. Eventually, your periods will become lighter and may stop altogether. Absence of a period in the 3 months following the use of the birth control injection does not mean you are pregnant.
