"The 1st Way the Pill Kills
The Pill makes your blood clot
Blood clots can form in the heart, the brain, or travel to the lungs from the legs.
Blood clots in a heart artery cause a heart attack (MI)
Blood clots in a brain artery cause a stroke (CVA)
Blood clots in your leg veins cause a deep venous thrombosis (DVT). These blood clots can break off from the legs and go to the lungs causing a fatal pulmonary embolism (PE) and are known as venous thromboembolisms (VTE).
Women with heredity conditions that cause clotting (example: deficiencies in protein C & S, antithrombin III, or Factor V Leiden) cause even higher rates of clotting.
