Almost any sort of medication has some sort of "risk" or side effects! That doesnt mean that it is going to happen, it just means that it is a possibility! Even otc meds have side effects listed on them! I have taken birth control before and the result was twins, LOL!..so I dont take them anymore, I had a tubal ligation instead!

"Prevention is better than Cure" Even the reasearch say that 30 blood clots every 100,000 user.That doesnt minimise the risk. if we fall in that 30 people category then we r the loser. But as far a the risk is minimum but prevention should be taken i.e.to consult ur doctor before taking any pills
