Re: Yasmin and my cerebral venous sinus thrombosis

Hello Ladies,
I am also very happy to have found this message board. Although I was not on Yasmin, I was on another estrogen-based BCP and developed extensive cerebral venous thrombosis in July 2010. 30-yr old, non-smoker, marathon runner. Boy was I shocked with the diagnosis!

I spent 6 days in the hospital and then 7months on Warfarin therapy. I have been told that I've had re-canalization of the veins but still suffer from strange symptoms and haven't really been able to get back to my life 100%. It was comforting to hear that I'm not the only one that has experienced these symptoms following re-canalization.

Thanks for posting ladies and feel free to contact me.
Regan
