hello dear
we do not have sufficient evidence to say that estrogen in oral contraceptive pill is a etiological
factor for fibroadenoma. how ever you are advice to be on OC pills for longer duration. for shorter duration you be on OC pills safely. if you want contraception for longer duration, it is better if you can choose intauterine devices(IUD). my sincere advice to you is that, it is better to take progesteron containing pills.
thanking you
take care

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
See, fibroadenoma's grow under influence of estrogen, OC pills contains it. SInce you had it once, you can get it again.
So choice is yours. There are other options like using a condom, relying on the safe days (if your periods are regular), tubectomy/vasectomy (if your family is complete).
