Minerva as a Contraceptive - is it safe?
Is there any reason for me to worry about using Minerva as a contraceptive as reading some comments on this website - there seems to be some consensus that it is not a reliable form of contraception?

I realise that it has to be taken properly etc but as long as we follow the guidelines there is no reason to doubt this method is there?

I would really appreciate your expert opinion

Minerva is as safe as any of the other oral contraceptives.
