PE’s and the Pill

Patient: I want to take the normal pill. I recently had bilateral blood clots in my lungs (PE) i was on clexane and i am now clear of them (for 2 months now). the doctor said my risk was no higher than anyone elses for getting blood clots while on the pill. but the family planning clinic said differently and say i shouldnt go on it… I just want to take the normall pill will i be able to?
