March represents Deep-Vein Thrombosis Awareness Month in order to let people know what this condition is and determine whether they are at risk.
DVT kills nearly 300,000 people a year, but many of these people were not even aware that this condition existed. DVT is a blood clot that usually occurs in the leg.
A number of things can cause this disease including immobility, the use of birth control pills, obesity and smoking. In order to prevent DVT, it is important to move your legs frequently and drink plenty of water. In order to raise awareness, people are wearing little sock pins on their clothing so that people will begin to talk about DVT.
If you or a loved one has suffered from DVT after taking Yasmin or Yaz birth control pills, contact the Yasmin deep-vein thrombosis lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today.
