worried about the using pill and heart disease
I'm 22 and i'm using the pill( triphasil). I read that if your family has a history of heart disease you shouldn't use the pill. Should i go off the pill. Or do it only affect older users?? Should i be Worried?? Thanx.

At your age it shouldn't be a problem. However, consult your doctor who can take a detailed history and see if there is any contraindication to your using the Pill.
