Birth control users with common vein issue higher risk of blood clot

Posted on August 3rd, 2011 No Comments

Nearly 25 percent of women have a vein malformation that makes them more likely to develop a blood clot while taking birth control.

The issue occurs when there is a narrowing of the left iliac vein, which is one of the major ones that returns blood from your lower body to your heart.

A recent study was published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology states that those who have the condition left iliac vein stenosis and they combine this with birth control containing estrogen and progestin, they multiply their chances of developing deep vein thrombosis by 18 times.

Deep vein thrombosis occurs when a blood clot is developed in the lower veins of the leg and they can travel to the heart. After the study was done, researchers conducted that if women are using the combined oral contraceptive and they develop deep vein thrombosis in their left leg, iliac vein stenosis should be looked into.
