When I was a four years old o had to have brain surgery because I had a blood clot on my brain that was pushing the left side of my brain to the right side and completely messed up the whole left side of my body. I am 22 years old I still and forever will walk with a limp in my left leg. In 2010 I had seizures from January to March. This year I didn't have a period for 2 months straight April and May. I just recently got my period back last Friday. On Tuesday my physician prescribed the birth control pills Cryselle. With my past medical history I want to know should I take them. They could cause cancer, blood clots, strokes and etc.
