Hey Ya Sarah

Good question. This comes up from time to time. Since your LE isn't BC related, my only concern would be that the pills doe make you more susceptible for blood clots. However, I have not heard of any lympher ever having one because of any contraception - so that to me is a big positive.

I researching this again too and will let you know if I find anything negative on it.
