Too long on the pill - worried
I have been on the pill (Triphasil) now for close to 16 years. I am 42 and do not want to have anymore children. What better alternative is there for me other than keeping on taking the Pill.
I am concerned about the estrogen level and cancer.

Alternatives would be sterilisation, the injectable or the IUCD. There is a good contraceptive section under the A-Z of diseases where you can read more about these options.
