People forget that ALL drugs can come with risk. There is always a possibility of anaphylaxis, which can be fatal, with ANY new drug. And as kaismama points out, it has been known since hormonal birth control first came onto the market that some women can have sever reactions to it like blood clots and strokes which can lead to death. This caution is on the literature of all hormonal birth control methods if you take time to read the literature. It is nothing new even though many lawyers are now advertising lawsuits against the comapnies like it is something new. (not that anybody gets anything out of a class action suit other then the lawyer) One should ALWAYS read any literature that accompanies your medications OR look it up here on drugs.com. NO medication is 100% safe.
