Menstrual Cycle - Very Important
Nicole (age 31....new grad student with a doctoral degree about to start her new career as a Doctor...) was flown into a nearby hospital, because she passed out.
They found a blood clot in her neck, and immediately took her by
helicopter to the ER to operate. By the time they removed the right
half of her skull to relieve the pressure on her brain the clot had
spread to her brain causing severe damage. Since last Wednesday night,
she was battling. They induced her into a coma to stop the blood flow.
They operated 3 times. Finally, they said there was nothing left that
they could do. They found multiple clots in the left side of her brain,
the swelling wouldn't stop, and she was on the life support. She died
at 4:30 yesterday. She leaves behind her husband, a 2 yr old Randon and
a 4yr old Justin. The CAUSE of DEATH they found was a birth control she
was taking that allows you to only have your period 3 X's a year. They
said it interrupts life's menstrual cycle, and although it is FDA
approved......it shouldn't be.
Boycott this product!!!!!!!! Deal with your periods once a month,so you can live the rest of the months that you life has in store for
Remember you have a cycle for a reason.
The name of this new birth control is Lybrel.
The second birth control is Seasonique.
Remember this info. You could save someone's life!
I got really upset after I read this in an email, I needed to spread the word.

Hi Tiffani, I checked this out on snopes.com:
This woman did die from a stroke and blood clots, but it is not clear that it was from her BCP (medical privacy laws w/hold this information). However, snopes.com indicates she was not using either of those BCPs, but rather Yasmin.

That's what I'm on! But it doesn't reduce peiords from 12 to 3 per year! I just started them 2.5 months ago... trying to find one that doesn't make me insane! Alless made me a mad woman!
That is a tradgic story. I will have to do some more research on it!
