Two brands of birth control pills raise blood clot risk | CTV News

It is a continuing mystery to me why women who shun regular produce in favor of 'organic' foods so willingly ingest chemicals designed to alter their body chemistry to prevent fertility. Stories like this one only serve to deepen the mystery for me.

Two brands of birth control pills raise blood clot risk | CTV News


  1. Not really a mystery Father. Not all women want children. Some put career before family. For others the reasons are fiscal. There are women who don't trust their men to practice birth control, and they have more peace of mind being in control of contraception themselves.

    I have worked in hospitals with women who took the pill because it reduced the horrors of pre menstrual tension and all the awful symptoms that go with it, not always easy to cope with when you have a very demanding job. There will be so many different reasons that will outweigh the risks.
    Blessings and prayers,

  2. The one does not have anything to do with the other, Tim.

    I'm taking advantage of what seems to be a cease-fire against my computer by the platform on which your blog is published. So far, so good! ;D

  3. Lady Janus: I hope that your computer and Blogger remain at peace with each other. I've missed your wisdom and humor!

  4. The benefits of taking 'the pill' outweigh the risks of not taking it. That is why sexually active teenagers and women of child bearing years take birth control pills. Older women may take it for hormonal reasons or because of polysystic ovarian syndrome or other medical reasons. And I do believe the risk is miniscule. Almost every woman I know has taken birth control pills sometime in their lives, but I personally have never met a woman who had blood clots as a result of taking them. Even with its faults, birth control pills are one of medical science's greatest inventions!

  5. Tim, whatever your blogger platform has against my computer, it seems to be an on-again-off-again thing. Earlier today, I couldn't get in. It's now midnight, and it's fine.

    I guess we'll take it as it comes. Kinda like life, eh?

    And I agree with the anonymous commenter.

    If I don't get a chance to tell you again, I hope you have a most wonderful Christmas!
