Limpopo is facing shortage of Condoms injectable contraceptives

The Limpopo Department of Health is calling on people to use condoms or abstain from sexual intercourse as alternative methods of contraception while parts of the province experience a shortage of injectable contraceptives.

Clinics in Mapayeni, Vuwani and Tshilamba villages in Mopani and Vhembe districts are in short supply of injectable contraceptives, with some women complaining about the risk of unplanned pregnancies.

Spokesperson for the department Derrick Kganyago says there is a global shortage , coupled with delays in the procurement of pharmaceutical products due to last week’s unrest.

Kganyago maintains there is no crisis and patients simply need to use other family planning methods, while they wait to receive some contraceptives on Friday.
