||Studies on the introduction of Cyclofem into family planning programmes have been undertaken in Indonesia, Jamaica, Mexico, Thailand and Tunisia. Cyclofem is a once-a-month injectable contraceptive containing 25mg medroxyprogesterone acetate and 5mg estradiol cypionate.

Major differences were seen in reasons and rates of discontinuation between countries, the overall 12-month life table discontinuation rates ranging from 33.5 percent in Indonesia to 71.8 percent in Tunisia.
