Re: Hormomal Depot Placement:What Is The Procedure? Its a very simple outdoor procedure. Just skin of arm(inner side) above elbow is made numb . A very small cut is given and capsules are placed underskin. These are very thin rod like capsules.
1capsule is for 6months and they mostly place 4 or 6 capsule for 2-3years
if you consult a family planning clinic they will guide you about price and it is not much costly.
you can read Choice of Contraception
being low dose hormones these have barely noticable side effects and are considered safe. Menstrual irregularity at times occur ,there are other like breast heaviness etc but are rarely reported with these
there is a criteria for their placement like to rule out blood coagulopathies and other diseases that doctor herself will check and therefore must contact a gynae
not every method is suitable for every couple
