Re: Best chemical contraceptive?
When you say injection, do you mean the depo provera shot? This method of birth control is over 99% accurate when shots are taken as you should, but there are side effects. I know a few people who tried the shot and most of them gained weight from it. Some people have other side effects as well. You can search for the website and read about the side effects.
I prefer the birth control pill. I have never had any negative side effects and I love it. There aren't any long term serious risks except for those who smoke or have health problems (high blood pressure probably is not good for the pill). Some people have side effects, but there are so many different pills out there with different hormones, so that's when you try a new one out.
It may be good to talk to a doctor about this. There are so many methods out there and you can pick up information on different kinds and find which one works best for you. Many are very effective when used correctly.. it's just a preference thing. Some people forget to take pills at the same time each day, so they use the patch, which is similar but you only need to change the patch once a week, or the shots you mentioned.
