Deep vein thrombosis is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep in the body and occurs when the blood begins to thicken and clump together.
Most deep vein blood clots occur in the lower leg and thigh, but it can happen in other parts of the body as well. If a blood clot in a vein breaks off and begins to travel it is called an embolus.
If it travels to the lung and blocks the blood flow, it is called a pulmonary embolism. This condition can cause serious damage to the lung and other body parts and can even cause death.
Recently, deep vein blood clots have been linked to certain types of fourth generation birth controls such as Yasmin and Yaz. If you have experienced deep vein thrombosis (DVT) as a result of taking Yasmin, Yaz or Ocella, you need experienced representation on your side.
