Minerva as a contraceptive
Is there any reason for me to worry about using Minerva as a contraceptive as reading some comments on the Gynaedoc section - there seems to be some concensous 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

As far as I'm (as well as plenty of gynaes) concerned Minerva is a perfectly reliable contraceptive - No need to worry. Various people that I know myself are using it in this way, and none of them had any misfortunes while on it.
