Contraception
I have been on the pill Jasmin for about 4 months now (previously was on Microgynon) and wanted to know how effective it is. If I am on the pill and also always use a second method of protection, ie: condoms, what are the chances of falling pregnant? I'd just like peace of mind that I am protected and don't have to worry - otherwise, should I consider an alternative and more effective form of contraception? I am undecided at present whether or not I want to have children and if I do, it won't be for at least another 3 years or so.
