The birth control pill is so common in our society that many women don’t give it a second thought when asking a doctor for a prescription. In fact, the birth control pill is not only for preventing pregnancy, women also take the pill to control hormones, acne and cramping. However, the unmentioned side effects of the birth control pill can cause serious problems for women. Sadly, oftentimes the newer versions of the birth control pill can even wreak havoc on a woman’s body. At Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP, our South Dakota personal injury lawyers are here to warn you of one of the most severe side effects of birth control pills: blood clots.
There is an increased risk of blood clots when a woman is on the pill—particularly blood clots occurring in the legs, thigh or pelvic area. This may also lead to a condition called deep vein thrombosis, which is responsible for a number of deaths throughout the United States every year. Sadly, deep vein thrombosis can travel to other parts of the body, such as the lungs, and without treatment may be fatal.
Pharmaceutical companies do not advertise the good with the bad, trying to diminish the negative side effects of any prescription medication. That is why it is important for you to speak candidly with your doctor if you are considering taking the birth control pill, or any other medication for that matter.
