Population Reports GATHER approach to counseling about injectables: Depo-Provera and Noristerat

 Injectable contraceptives are convenient, private, and very effective. This guide will help you, the family planning provider, tell your clients about the 3-month injectable called Depo-Provera (DMPA) or the 2-month injectable called Noristerat (NET EN). Counseling is a step-by- step discussion between you and the client. Counseling helps each client choose and use the family planning method that best suits that person’s needs. Good counseling involves friendly, open talk with the client to find out politely what she wants and what concerns her.
