Thanks for writing in.
Even though oral contraceptives like Yasmin do increase the risk of heart disease
, they do so when taken over a prolonged period of time. They will not do it in a very short span.
The palpitations that you are experiencing could be due to simply anxiety
. However, given your age group, I would suggest you get an electrocardiogram done. Also, a total cholesterol
level, LDL, HDL and blood sugar level should be done to ensure we are not missing anything.
Hope this helps
