SOMA-JECT®

SOMA-JECT® is an intra-mascular injectable which has been marketed by SMC since 1998 through a network of non-graduate health practitioners branded as Blue Star Providers (BSPs). SOMA-JECT® injection (Depo-Medroxyprogesterone Acetate) is a short term family planning method for women having one child. SMC’s SOMA-JECT® is 99% effective.

SOMA-JECT® contains progesterone hormone and it is proved to be very useful for women who are breastfeeding their babies because it does not have negative impact on their breast milk.
