Yasmin and smoking hubbly bubbly

Hi there. I am 25 years old and have been on Yasmin for about 7 years to help with acne. I read on the internet that smoking together with taking the pill is bad for you. What exactly are the risks? I don''t smoke cigarettes, but hubbly bubbly about one evening in a month. Are the risks the same as with normal smoking? Thank you!

The risks are of venous thrombosis. If there is tobacco in the hubbly bubbly then the risk is the same. Once a month is very little though.

Best wishes
