I'm 40 years old and have been on birth control pills for 23 years now... when is it time to go off them??? I'm a non smoker, in good health, my husband and I aren't going to be having children..... My concern is, my age and the length of time I've been on them.. Is it ok to still take them? Looking for guidance!!!

As long as your doctor is comfortable with it then you shouldn't have anything to worry about and then once you hit menopause you can stop the birth control.
