There are always a slight chance of pregnancy. With the injection, that chance is extremely small. No birth control method is 100% effective all the time.

Your doctor is doing what is expected when you have breakthrough spotting like you had.

You are perfectly safe taking Primolut N and the injection. The injection will still protect you from pregnancy. Primolut N does not make the injection stop working.

Take care

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Spotting is a side effect of the injection and not due topregnancy.Primolut will help likely. Your body is adjusting ot new hormonal imbalances and thats causing this issue. With passage of time, it will resolve.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
