It was once believed that women over 35 should not use oral contraceptives. However, some newer brands offer a lower dosage of estrogen than their predecessors, and some doctors do consider it to be a good alternative for healthy women over 40 who don't smoke and maintain a healthy body weight. Other doctors remain more cautious.

If you have good health, maintain a good body weight and are a non-smoker it may well be an option for you. Talk with your doctor.
