Patient : I am a 38 year old, healthy woman. My doctor put me on birth control pills to regulate my periods. I was having very irregular cycles, usually several periods in one month. I recently started smoking. I only have two or three cigaretts a day. I started because I found it helps me feel calm and relieves stress. I have been in under alot of stress lately. My question is how dangerous is it for me to be smoking, due to my age. I would appreciate any adivce you many have. Thank you.
