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.
