WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Thromboembolic Disorders and Other Vascular Problems
  • Data from a large, prospective cohort safety study of various COCs (combined oral contraceptives) suggest that this increased risk, as compared to that in non-COC users, is greatest during the first 6 months of COC use. Data from this safety study indicate that the greatest risk of VTE is present after initially starting a COC or restarting (following a 4 week or greater pill-free interval) the same or a different COC.
