The pill

I previously used the injection but it has been about a year since i stop. Now i am considering using the pill. Are there different types? For a 26 year old that is scared to go back using contraceptive because of the side effects. Currently my partner uses condoms and i am happy just using that. thanks and look forward to the advice.

im using Nordette, i get it frm the nearest clinic, its been good to me,i been using it since nov. i tried the injection once, but it prevented me from getting my periods and i wasnt happy with that,so i changed ot the pill, i suppose the costs come in mind as well, with others u buy them ova the counter and with mine u get free at a clinic, i just recently got my six packets for th next six months,
