Osteoporosis prevention injection

I have started taking estrogen blocking tab and is advised to have 6 month once injection for preventing osteoporosis. I have the option of intra venous which is cheaper and subcutaneous one with lesser side effects but costly. Any suggestion which one i should opt for. Thank you
