Remove the contraceptive pill 'Rigevidon' from the NHS

This petition had 27,013 supporters

This combined contraceptive pill has caused myself and many others to develop serious health complications. After just 8 weeks on this pill I developed a blood clot in my brain and early onset stroke, numerous tests have shown there was no causing factor besides this pill. Whilst I recovered, many other young girls have died of blood clots as result of taking this specific pill. I feel very passionately that this pill should not be prescribed to anyone. The dangers are becoming more apparent and more and more stories are coming out of girls who have developed blood clots. Many alternative combined pills are available which I believe renders this pill an unnecessary danger that should be removed from the drugs market entirely. I would really appreciate your support in making this change happen and preventing any more potential fatalities that could occur from a drug that we would not expect to be harmful.
