Remove the contraceptive pill 'Rigevidon' from the NHS
- Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)
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 understand that all pills come with risks but this pill seems to be causing blood clots far more often than expected and I believe this should be seriously investigated and withdrawn from prescription until a decision is made about its safety.
