Hormones without Birth Control

Patient : I was on OrthoTriCyclen Lo for many years and loved it. I quit taking it and have had two miscarriages. After my last miscarriage, my breasts have changed, lost fullness, firmness and some feeling. I have also had an increase in acne, unwanted hair and irregular periods. I have been considering getting back on the pill but I am almost 32 and do not want to take the risks of blood clots, etc. Is there something I can take that will give me the hormones back but without such high risks?
