Clients should be scheduled for DMPA reinjections every 13 weeks. According to the 2008 WHO guidelines, a client can receive a reinjection if she is up to 2 weeks early or 4 weeks past her scheduled reinjection date, without ruling out pregnancy. Clients arriving after the reinjection window may also be eligible if pregnancy can be ruled out. The steps in this aid should be followed for clients who are returning for reinjection. For clients who want an injection for the first time, "Checklist for Screening Clients Who Want to Initiate DMPA".should be used.
