injectable contraceptive

[injek′təbəl]
medroxyprogesterone acetate, a progestin used as a contraceptive, administered intramuscularly at a dose sufficient to prevent ovulation. The muscle into which the hormone is injected serves as a depot from which the hormone is slowly released so that injections need to be given only every 3 months. This is a very convenient and highly effective method of contraception.
