POIs include depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA)
norethisterone enanthate (NET-EN). There are three formulations considered here:
- DMPA-IM = 150Â mg of DMPA given intramuscularly
- DMPA-SC = 104Â mg of DMPA given subcutaneously
- NET-EN = 200Â mg of NET-EN given intramuscularly
Evidence available for DMPA-IM applies to DMPA-SC and, therefore, DMPA-SC should have the same categories as DMPA-IM.
