FDA Approves Monthly Birth Control Injection

The US Food and Drug Administration approved another option for American women to control their reproductive health. Lunelle, a monthly shot to prevent pregnancy, was proven to be 99 percent effective in clinical trials of over 1,000 women. The expected cost is between $30 and $37 per injection. Women taking Lunelle still have monthly menstrual cycles and cannot go more than 33 days between shots for the drug to be effective.
