A 35-year-old woman was killed because of a blood clot that relatives believe was caused by her oral contraceptive pill.
Just hours before the woman collapsed, she complained of stomach pains and sickness. The woman had been taking the oral contraceptive pill for seven years and remained very healthy.
Besides regular check ups, the woman rarely even needed to visit a physician. After complaining of stomach pain, the woman called a doctor with extended hours. She stopped breathing shortly after and was pronounced dead when emergency crews arrived at the scene. The woman’s boyfriend of six years stated that the coroner announced that the pill may have had a connection to her death.
Our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim at this time.
