My derm is trying to get me on Accutane, but I developed a pulmonary embolism following an orththopedic break (femur bone) 4 years ago and I have been told that I shouldn't take hormonal birth control (estrogen) such as BCP because of the risk.
I just need to take it for like 8 months, and then I would go back off of it, following the Accutane treatment...
I have already looked into other options such as the single hormone shot and non-hormone copper IUD, but I am also uncomfortable with those options.. There is just no easy way and I feel like I am backed into a corner.
