Contraceptive Injection
Hello,

I have just recently gone onto the Contraceptive Injection - 3 month.
I have conflicting information as to when I am "safe" - my GP mentions 1 week, the local pharmacist informed me - 2 weeks. Who is correct?

How will I know if I am pregnant or not?

The packet insert says 2 weeks.

Signs of pregnancy:
* missed period
* swollen and sore breasts
* frequency of urine
* Nausea
