At a glance: the contraceptive injection​

  • If used correctly, the contraceptive injection is more than 99% effective.
  • It lasts for 8 or 13 weeks (depending on which injection you have) so you do not have to think about contraception every day or every time you have sex during this period.
  • It's very useful for women who find it difficult to remember to take a pill at the same time every day.
  • It does require you to remember to have a repeat injection before it expires or becomes ineffective.
  • It can be useful for women who cannot use contraception that contains oestrogen.
  • It's not affected by other medicines.
  • Side effects can include weight gain, headaches, mood swings, breast tenderness and irregular bleeding.
  • Your periods may become more irregular, heavier, shorter, lighter or stop altogether.
  • It can take up to 1 year for your fertility to return to normal after the injection wears off, so it may not be suitable if you want to have a baby in the near future.
  • It does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), so you may need to use condoms as well.

As more real-world data emerges, our knowledge of all these areas will only increase, and we will also start to gain new insights into the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines, such as how long the immune protection afforded by them lasts.​

Some of the COVID-19 vaccines, such as the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines, reported greater than 90% efficacy in the context of those trials, and all of those authorised for emergency use by the WHO and currently being monitored in the general population*, reported efficacies of greater than 50% for the prevention of symptomatic disease, and much higher efficacies for the prevention of hospitalisations or death (see table below).

EFFICACIES OF COVID-19 VACCINES BASED ON CLINICAL TRIAL RESULTS

VaccineProtection against all symptomatic disease after 1st dose (95% CI)*Protection against all symptomatic disease after 2nd dose (95% CI)*Protection against severe disease or hospitalization from start of vaccination (95% CI)*Protection against severe disease or hospitalization from 21 days after 1st dose (95% CI)*
AstraZeneca73% (56%-83%)**67% (57% to 74%)**90% (58%-98%)100%
Moderna85% (66%-93%)95% (90%-97%)100%100%
Pfizer-BioNTech82% (76%-87%)94% (90%-97%)89% (12%-99%)83% (-38% to 98%)
Sinopharmn/a78% (65%-86%)n/a79% (26%-94%)
Sinovacn/a51% (36%-62%)n/a100%
Janssen/Johnson& Johnson66% (55%-75%)***n/a77% (55%-89%) after 14 days85% (54%-97%) after 28 days
*Data shown are on protection against SARS-CoV-2 ancestral strain
**AstraZeneca data shown on symptomatic disease is only for cases at least 14 days after administration of dose
***Single dose vaccine. Refers to protection against symptomatic disease, 28 days after vaccination.

This is far better than many scientists had dared to predict this time last year. Indeed, the WHO originally said that a minimally acceptable COVID-19 vaccine would achieve at least 50% efficacy, but ideally at least 70% efficacy, with consistent results in older people, and immunity lasting for at least a year.

So it’s all about efficacy.

I’ve known of a few women who got pregnant after the contraceptive injection.
Given the effectiveness of the Covid vaccines, it’s hardly surprising that folk are still getting it. More interestingly, you can see why the AZ vaccine has been quietly sidelined though.

Pretty well describes most of the stuff you share.

Havent posted on here for a while as it’s so depressing to be exposed to the idiocy and abuse of the conspiracy crew .

Nearly every thread ( such as this ) shows their zero level of understanding of anything at all, but particularly about the effect of the covid vaccine .
How people can reach adulthood and be so spectacularly dense is just sad really .
