CWN Editor's Note: The annual US death toll of 300-400 women “bears repeating, because birth control’s connection to blood clot risk is so little known and discussed, both from doctors prescribing the contraceptives and from the drug manufacturers’ inserts themselves,” writes Mary Rose Somarriba. “All of the drug inserts in hormonal contraceptive prescriptions mention blood clot risk, but they often do so in ways that obscure the level of risk for the average woman.”
