OCs vs Injectables: Oral contraceptives work well for people who have discipline and commitment to pop a pill every single day as their effectiveness depends on the cumulative effects of the individual pills. Injectable contraceptives are ideal for those who will from time to time forget to take their pills thus reducing the effectiveness of the chosen oral contraceptives
