Recently, the yasmin has started to not work efficiently, whereby I now have breakthrough bleeding, and very heavy periods
with lots of clotting
. Went to a GYN, and I'm due to have blood tests to determine hormonal levels, etc. My question is the following: The GYN told me that it wasn't safe to be on the birthcontrol pill for any woman over 40. Now, I'm active, I run, I'm not overweight, no breast cancer in our family, etc.
