Want to go back on injection, problems with the Pill
Hi All

Hope you can give me some advice. I was on the injection for 2 years and the went on the Pill (Minerva) Well I decided to go back on the injection as the Pill just doesn't seem to be agreeing with me. I get the worst headaches when I'm on my period. So my questions are: Is it advisable to go back on the injection. If so when should I go for the injection? Should I finish this pack as I'm on my period now?

Thank you.

If you had no problems with the injection, it is fine to go back on it. If you are planning a preganncy soon it may not be a good idea, as there is a long delay in return to fertility though. Have the injection when you have finished your current packet of pills if that is what you decide..
