Newer contraceptive pills may raise risk of blood clot
Newer contraceptive pills may raise risk of blood clot (May 28, 2015 - Insidermedicine) From the UK - A new report published in the BMJ finds that some newer contraceptive pills may be linked to risk of blood clot. Researchers studied prescription data from two large databases to examined the link between combined oral contraceptives and VTE. Results showed that users of combined oral contraceptives were at raised risk of VTE compared to non-users. As well, women using newer pills, containing newer types of progesterone hormone, were at around 1.5-1.8x increased risk of VTE than women using older pills.
