Should I stop Yasmin Pill after reaching 30?

Patient: I will be 30yrs in march and i am taking the Yasmin pill, I have heard that i should change to another pill when i turn 30. Is this true?

 

 

Doctor: If you do not smoke, are not overweight and do not suffer from high blood pressure then it is safe to continue using yas min pill until the age of 45. There is no reason for you to change the contraceptive pill unless your doctor tells you to do so. I hope this answers your question, take care.
