High Cholesterol Board Index

It doesn't sound like you can improve your diet much. If you aren't eating fatty fish like salmon or tuna twice weekly, you might do that. Or you could start taking a fish oil supplement. Then try to get more cardio exercise. For many people that helps to bring the HDL up higher, so the ratio looks better. I think those things are probably all I would do until my next lipid test, but if you were really concerned you might also consider taking some flush-free niacin. I wouldn't take any more than 250 mg at this point. That might just be enough to improve your numbers a little with a minimum of risk of dangerous side effects.

The birth control pills are probably what is making the difference between your current good lipid panel and what would otherwise be a superb one.
