Self-Injectable Depo

Did you know you could give yourself the Depo shot at home? Its true! It’s called subcutaneous Depo, or SubQ Depo for short, and it’s a different type of Depo than the one you are given at the doctor’s office. 

It uses a smaller needle and has fewer hormones which may mean fewer side effects. A lot of health care providers are unaware of this option so you will have to ask for it specifically but it’s covered by most insurance plans (including Mississippi Medicaid).
