This includes oral birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) that contain estrogen. Bioequivalent hormone replacement therapy (B-HRT) does contain a form of estrogen and therefore is as dangerous for you to take as regular HRT. Avoid all estrogens! ...Read more

There's a study my girl heard about where you're paid for laying in bed 70 days. Can this cause blood clots? Or is a 25 year old probably safe?

There's a study my girl heard about where you're paid for laying in bed 70 days. Can this cause blood clots? Or is a 25 year old probably safe?

It would have to be a big payment, to cover the risks and physical rehab afterwards. ...Read more
