Pill vs Injection

Can anyone please advise me on which method of contraception is safer or more effective. I have heard the injection is and that many, many woman fall pregnant on the pill and this scares me!

They are both pretty much equally effective. The injection does have a long return to fertility, so it would depend on how soon you are planning a family.

DO you want children one day? If so do not go on the injection. I was on the 3 months injection for two years and since then have not had my periods. Now that i want to i cant fall pregnant. Think about the future now, and make the right decision
