Question Blood Clot?!

I am 18 years old and just went on the contraceptive pill called yaz. One of the symptoms of the pill is the possibility of developing blood clots. I am currently experiencing a sharp pain in the back of my right thigh, which is consistent with a blood clot. I was told however that it would be swollen, very red with a white spot in the middle, which I don't actually have. I am very scared to walk on it because a nurse told me that it could possibly break off and cause a heart attack/ stoke (depending on its location on my body).

I am very desperate, can someone please answer quickly?

Re: Blood Clot?!

Hello!

To ensure you don't have a blood clot you have to do a test called "Doppler" which is not painful and can be done very quickly.
Normaly people at your age dont get blood clots unless they have a blood disease or cardiovascular disease which is not the case I assume?
Blood clots have the habilty to travel through the body but if you get a doppler done on your legs and they are clot free then you can assume the rest of the body will be okay too.
So if you want to make sure, get a doppler.
