The pill – increases risk of BREAST CANCER

Taking the pill (combined contraceptive pill) slightly increases your risk of breast cancer. Ten years after stopping the pill this increased risk will have disappeared and your chance of developing breast cancer will be about the same as that of a woman who has never taken the pill. Remember, breast cancer is rare in women under the age of 40, regardless of whether or not they use the pill. The pill increases the need for vitamin B6, add 50 mg daily.
