Birth control and lupus

I have SLE and have heard that it is not advisable for woman to go on the pill as the estrogen levels are too high. Please could you advise me whether there aren' t any oral contraceptive available that would be safe for me to take with the lupus with minimal side effects.

Dear Anonymous
The safest for you to use would probably be the Mirena coil or a progesterone only pill
