Has Anyone Else Had A Blood Clot From Bcp?

Recommended Posts

Hi there =)

Two years ago I was on BCP and it cleared up my acne wonderfully. I was on a combo of spiro and bcp and using epiduo and finacea gel. I have hormonal nodule cystic acne in my cheeks and jaw area.

Unfortunately, I had a blood clot in my right subclavian vein and I had to be put off of BCP. (I don't smoke, and I regularly exercise) So, Now, my acne has came back with a vengeance I've been on everything but accutane.( they do not want me on accutane due to medical reasons) I was wondering, if there are any other ladies who have been on BCP but had to get off of it and what are you taking now? I don't know if I should go back on spiro, but I'm already on so many medications as it is. I have also taken everything, doxycycline, tetracycline, bactrim, and ect..

Any advice will help =) thankyou!

I had a migraine which completley paralyzed the left side of my body whilst on BC. The doctor said I was at risk of a stroke and took me off it. Now I use herbal supplements like agnus castus, evening primrose oil, zinc, B vitmain complex, Vitamin C, DIM plus, omega 3 fish oil.

What brand bcp were you on if you don't mind me asking? I haven't seen anything about spiro that is associated with blood clots but of course check with your doctor. Spiro is probably going to be your best option.

omg, that sounds so scary with the stroke! i am so sorry. =(

and i'm sorry, i really do not remember what kind I was on, I just know it was a generic version of something... I think maybe something called dianette? Not sure, but it would probably be a good idea for me to go back on spiro.
