Find What Is Best For You
If you have other risk factors for breast cancer, such as a family history, you should talk over contraceptive risks with your doctor. It is also worth thinking about how long you plan to be on the contraception. Whilst the pill does have a small risk increase for breast cancer, it also slightly decreases your risk of some other cancers, such as ovarian cancer. So, before you decide on a contraceptive, weigh up the pros and cons of each and consider your own health and lifestyle. Like all medicine, the pill has risks and benefits. There are plenty of contraceptives out there, so find what works for you. You can ask your doctor to help you make an informed choice. Our good pals at Brook also have a fab contraceptive guide to help you.
