If you are exposed: To alot of it, I do not know what the amount would be but at your age could increase your risk, if u want no more kids i would offer u in office tubal sterilization, takes 5 minutes easy and safe, and then u could get an in office endometrial ablation to get rid of the lining so no more periods , I have done both on many of my pts and they are very happy and do not have to use bc pills anymore.
