I am sorry that happened to her, but thankfully it was caught and I hope she is better soon! I have heard some say they were prescribed progesterone only pill, which is considered the mini-Pill. It should not be taken if you have undiagnosed vaginal bleeding, severe artery diease, live tumours, porphryis, or breast cancer. It doesn’t work exactly like the combination pill, but has been said to help PCOS symptoms. The risks are similar, but from what I have read, some who have had the blood clotting issue were allowed it as a suggestion, but I am not 100% positive.
I am sorry this isn’t very helpful. Followers, can you answer this, personal experience, etc? If so, send a message here or let her know in her ask box! Please and thank you!
