  • Uses

    Famila injection contains Medroxyprogesterone acetate, which behaves like normal progesterone hormone to prevent pregnancy. It prevents pregnancy by the following methods:

    • Prevents the egg from getting released from the ovaries
    • Alters the thickness of cervical fluid, making it difficult for the sperm to enter the womb
    • Prevents the thickening of the lining of the womb, making it difficult for the egg to grow in it.
