Injection
Hi There

In comparison to the pill how safe is the "injection". My girlfriend hates using condoms and im paranoid about her falling pregnant. Is this a very safe method of birth control ? What are the possible adverse effects of using it. Is there any medication or substances that will cancel the effect of the injection if taken while on the injection ?
Thanks

It is 99% safe. It is not affected by medications. Like all drugs, it has side effects. You can read more of these by looking under Contraception.
