I'm planning to get a contraceptive injection soon but I'm suffering from acid reflux. Is it safe to take a contraceptive injection or use contraceptive pills if you're a refluxer?

    I've never had the injection, however after being on a low dose combined pill, my reflux really hit hard and I was very poorly, however specialists ate still unsure if it was definitely related, I've not been able to take any contraception since due to fear of the symptoms coming back, however I'm one of those who's had problems all my life with pill, periods etc!!

    I would definitely speak to the professionals first though!
