Does the injection change you??

I have been on 2 different pills in 3 years and am currently not using any contraception besides condoms. This still worries me and i want to feel safer. I was on Femodene first, but that made me gain weight and become very grumpy and then also tried yasmin, but it made me very emotionally unstable and made me cry all the time for no reason. I have been thinking about the injection, but i really don't want any bad side effects such as moodiness or weight gain. Is there either a pill you can suggest or else some more information on how people have responded to the injection and which injection has had the best results!
Please help!!!

All contraception has side effects. You have to find one you can work with. Not everyone reacts the same way to every contraceptive so you may find that the injectables work for you. Visit a family planning clinic

Maybe you should see a dietician and also have your blood sugar levels tested. They could be unstable, and maybe they are contributing to your moodiness. Weight gain is often a symptom that all is not well with one's sugar levels.
