In brief: Small risk

Birth control pills carry a small increased risk of forming a blood clot.
This risk is markedly increased in women over 35 who smoke, and these women should not take the pill. Discuss your personal medical history with your doctor to see if the pill is the right birth control option for you.

there is definitely relationship between use of birth control pills and possible development of venous thrombosis.
I will discuss this with her gynecologist to determine which best type of contraceptive would be best for you
