Sayana Press is a Long-Acting Reversible Contraceptive (LARC) injection that gives you 13 weeks of effective contraception.

Sayana Press is a contraception that you can self-inject at home once you have been trained by a Doctor or Nurse at Swish. Please contact Swish for a consultation if you are interested in this method.

How to use Sayana Press

If you’ve have been seen at Swish and chosen Sayana Press, the Doctor or Nurse will have trained you on how to inject.

For future injections, the video above can help you remember each step and guide you through the process.

You should have had your first injection under the supervision of your Doctor or Nurse. You should only self-inject once you have been trained.


We have provided you with a container (purple sharps bin) to dispose of your used injections and it is important that you store this and the unused injections in a safe place out of the reach of children.

You can use dispose of your used injections throughout the year in this container and return the sealed box at your next appointment when we will issue you with a new one.
