Birth Control Health Risks

Each form of birth control in existence carries with it a certain amount of health risks. Users of the Ortho Evra patch who also smoke are at an increased risk of suffering from negative health consequences. In fact, health risks are so daunting that it is recommended that smokers over the age of 35 should not take the Ortho Evra patch.

Other health risks of the Ortho Evra patch include the possibility of blood clots in the legs or lungs and hypertension. Additionally, the side effects of Ortho Evra may lead to further complications and other health risks. For these reasons, women who smoke or have a history of migraines, high blood pressure, diabetes, abnormal and unexplained vaginal bleeding, blood clots, liver cancer or disease, breast or uterine cancer, stroke, or heart attack should not risk their health by using Ortho Evra.

If you or someone you care about has suffered as a result of their using the Ortho Evra patch, it is important to fully understand your legal rights. As a victim, you may be entitled to compensation that can offset medical expenses and provide security for the road ahead. Do not hesitate to contact an experienced and understanding lawyer today.
