Some Birth Control Methods More Likely to Lead to Blood Cloths Than Other


According to a team of researchers at the University of Copenhagen, women who use such birth control methods as vaginal rings and skin patches are more likely to develop blood cloths compared to those who are on a pill.

Scientists carried out a study, during which they analyzed 1,6 million women. According to the results of the research women, who avoided using birth control methods, were less likely to develop blood clots.

At the same time, women who considered using the contraceptive pill, had 6 in 10,000 risk of developing blood cloth. The figure was a bit higher in women that used vaginal rings. Those that used skin patches showed the highest number.
