First Gynecology Visit

Gyno #1 prescribed birth control pills. I thought that’d help, but I decided to double-check with  my GP.  He told me NOT to take them because, from a DNA test, I have a 20% chance of getting breast cancer. The estrogen from the BC pills would increase that chance and he suggested that I have an MRI and meet with my oncologist (I have a yearly check-up with her). I made the MRI appointment.
