Surgically corrected VSD and Birth Control Pills

My daughter is an 18 year old who has just completed her freshman year of college. Her VSD was diagnosed within a week of her birth and was surgically corrected at age 15 months. Her physical activitites through her elementary and secondary education were not restricted. Her surgeon told us that her heart defect was "fixed" and that she should be able to lead a normal life and expect a normal life span. Our question? My wife and I would like her to take low grade birth control pills in order to regulate her mentrual cycle and to help control a stubborn case of teenage acne. Are the risks of birth control pills greater as a result of her corrected VSD?
