Re: Puliminary Embulism (blood Clots) on Sprintec
I just had to comment after coming across this thread tonight. Back on October 20, 2010 I was diagnosed with a DVT in my left leg. I was 28 years old, and I had only been on the birth control pill Tri-Sprintec for a little more than 8 months. It was a horrific ordeal to go through with being on both Lovenox injections for a week and then Coumadin therapy for 3 months, and the clot has permanently damaged my leg (though I am honestly thankful to be alive today). There are so many advertisements for lawsuits on TV regarding Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, and even IUDs having caused serious injury, DVTs, strokes, and even death in women. Online I am coming across more and more women, many in their twenties (like I was), who have been harmed by Tri-Sprintec. I too wonder if there has ever been a lawsuit filed against this drug?! Does anyone know? I hate that this particular pill has hurt so many others.
