ALL increase DVT ris: All birth control pills increase the risk of blood clots. Pills containing drospirinone as they progestin component have a slightly higher risk of blood clot promotion (but are still avail on the market) than non-drospirinone formulations.

Does Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) have a higher risk of blood clots, stroke or heart attack than other birth control pills?
Slightly: The answer is a bit more complex. All birth control pills slightly increase your risk for blood clots. Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and yasmin, have a Progesterone that has a sligtly higher risk then other birth control pills.

How much does the probability of getting a blood clot go up due to oral contraceptives? What are the symptoms of a blood clot?
I'm on the birth control pill, recently become bad with health anxiety, how much of a heart problem risk does the pill cause? Is it drastic? Thankyou
Heart and BP pill: The risk of having a heart attack or stroke is low for most women, but it increases with age. At your age it is low risk, but over 35 the risk is higher. Also, women who smoke have a higher risk of heart disease. I would recommend no smoking if you are on the pill. Also, your blood pressure should be taken before starting the pill. High blood pressure is a risk for heart disease. ...Read more

Trying to decide on birth control option for heavy menses causing anemia. Does Mirena (levonorgestrel) carry the same risk of thrombosis as oral contraceptives?
Both choices - good: Mirena (levonorgestrel) - the Progestin only IUD would be a very good choice. I recommend it's usage to my patients with heavy vaginal bleeding. Of course the OCP is a method tried and true for those needing cycle control. The Mirena (levonorgestrel), from the literature does not carry the risk of thrombosis of OCPs but at your age either would be a safe choice with low occurrence of thrombosis. ...Read more

Withdrawal ineffecti: You should know that withdrawal is NOT a backup method at all. Your girlfriend could still get pregnant. Condoms can slip off, have a hole or slip partially off. By themselves don't provide the best of methods of birth control but they do offer protection from STDs. Your girlfriend could use foam or cream spermatocide with you using a condom. This would be more effective. ...Read more
I'm on the no estrogen contraceptive pill. Theres a high risk of severe blood clots In my family, so I'm worrying. Can I still take the pill?
Should be ok: The mini-pills are progestin-only contraceptive pills, and are not felt to increase one's risk of blood clots. One should check with her primary care doctor and review her family history. If relatives had blood clots, a woman may have a genetic clotting disorder, and be prone to clotting during pregnancy. That would mean using a mini-pill to prevent pregnancy can be safer than getting pregnant. ...Read more

Is a sign of too much estrogen in
your birth control pill insomnia?
Or is it the particular type of
progestin to blame?
No definite answer: Usually more related to progesterone. Even among varying dose of estrogen in birth control pills they are all low doses, and generally even the same estrogen. Insomnia can also be a sign of lowering of your own estrogen levels as women get closer to menopause. So it may not be from the pills. ...Read more
