My blood thick what's the best treatment for it?

My blood thick what's the best treatment for it?

Find out why first!: Best treatment for thick blood (polycythemia) depends upon cause. Is it polycythemia vera? Or is it due to smoking? Or perhaps excessive anabolic steroids?

This sounds more like an infection like STDs, such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. Probably not due to the pill. See a doctor or clinic for evaluation, probably including STD testing. Good luck! ...Read more
