Nur-Isterate vs Pill
I Have been on the injection for the last 5 years, i am 25 years old and have a son. The nurses said the only side effect would be that i would struggle to fall pregnant again, but i dont want any more children so that is not a problem. But i started getting breakouts of pimples on my back which ive never had before, and a friend of mine told me she had that same side effect from the injection. Now i want to go on the pill, but i dont know what the side effects are and if it is dangerous that i am a smoker.....please advise, which is better?
Thank you

Have a look under Contraception on this website for information on the side effects of the Pill.
