Giving my body a break from the pill
I am 29 years old and have been on the pill for about 10 years. The last time i had a break from the pill was at least 5 years ago.I I am not in a sexual relationship. Should I give my body a break or is it a good idea to continue using the pill on a daily basis?

There is no need to take a break from the Pill. However, if you are not sexually active and do not need contraception, there is no need to take it unless there is some other problem.
