FDA Measures and Birth Control
America and the Western world have led the way in the development and use of oral contraceptives. As a popular form of birth control, these pills are marketed heavily and widely available. Although information regarding the potential risks and adverse effects associated with birth control pills is available, there have been numerous cases of women experiencing serious complications after using certain birth control medications. Among these, blood clots are becoming a prevalent concern, as many cases entail serious and life-threatening physical injuries.
In light of several medical studies, the FDA has recently taken measures to ensure that pharmaceutical companies marketing birth control pills place warning labels regarding the risks of developing blood clots on their products. Unfortunately, many women who have already taken these medications as a form of birth control, or as a treatment for acne in some cases, have experienced such adverse effects. Statistically, women who use birth control pills containing drospirenone may increase their risk of developing blood clots by up to three times. Medications known to result in blood clots include:
The development of severe blood clots can pose extreme dangers and complication to women. Blood clots may contribute to additional conditions such as deep vein thrombosis, venous thromboembolism, pulmonary embolism, hyperkalemia, cerebrovascular accidents, heart attack, stroke, myocardial infraction and others.
