I am nearly 33 years old and have just had my second child 8 weeks ago. I had my postnatal check up on Monday and the doctor have me a prescription for the pill, but I am worried that I may be too old to take it. I've heard that once you get to 35 there are health risks and I'm not far off 35 am I? I am not overweight and am a non smoker. I was on the pill before I had my second baby and was hoping not to be putting hormones back into my body but I think the contraception options are quite limited. I did want to use just condoms but it feels a bit 'not right' as a long term thing with my husband. Can anyone please advise if it is safe to go back on the pill just for a short time maybe? Is anyone else on the pill at or around my age?

Is 33 too old to go back on the pill after having a baby?
