Some good news about birth control and heart health

Fall in love! Studies show that progestin-only methods don't affect your pitter patter.

With all the recent press about the pill and blood clots, you may be wondering if you should be worried about heart health while using birth control. Fear not, a new study shows that women using progestin-only methods—like the implant, the mini-pill, and the shot—were no more likely to have a heart attack than other women. Heart attacks are super rare among women under 40 anyway, but it’s reassuring to know these methods don’t change that equation.
