Posted by: Sam | 2011/07/08

is it safe to be on the pill after 35

hi doc

my hubby and i decided that we dont want any more children,

am not too sure about a vasectomy tho, is it healthy and safe to be on the pill still over the age of 35 ?
and if we go the vasectomy route, is it healthy to be off the pill?

i read that the pill does have some good qualities when it comes to ovarian cancer and such, i am on Yasmin at the moment,

thanks

If you do not smoke and have no risk factors for heart disease, then you can use the Pill after 35. The Pill has some protective factors as you say, but there is no reason to stay on it if you do not need it for contraception.
