Question: Hi doc,
I need to know the safest - oral contraceptive pills. I am 32 years old with one 3 years old kid. Dont plan to have any more kids. and have tried multiload. But that made me have heavier periods and midcycle pain. I would prefer the OCP which causes least possible weight gain though I am not over weight BMI-23. Please suggest. I am prone to UTI also - if this has any link to the medication.
