How Dimple Injection works

Dimple Contraceptive Injection is a progestin (female hormone). It works by preventing an egg from developing fully and being released from the ovaries during your menstrual cycle. It also alters the lining of your womb and thickens the mucus at the entrance of the womb, making it more difficult for the sperm to enter. This prevents pregnancy.

you can take an I pill within 72 hrs on ur act. but u ve to remember it is only 90% effective. no medication is 100% effective. and u can not take I pills more den once as it is high dose progesterone and repeated doses causes cycle disturbances and unpredictable ovulation and increases chancea of unwanted pregnancy so please shift to a permanant method of contraception.
