This study aims to determine the effect of yoga movements combined with aromatherapy (aromayoga) to reduce the weight of injectable birth control acceptors. The method used was true experimental with a pre-post test with a control design approach on 36 injectable birth control acceptors who experienced weight gain after injectable contraception, carried out 14 times in 2 months with a duration of 30 minutes. The analytical test was carried out using the Independent t-test analysis. The results showed a difference in the average weight loss in the intervention and control groups of 8.29 (p-value = 0.035) after two months of intervention. In conclusion, Aromayoga therapy affects losing weight, a side effect of injectable birth control.
