Birth Control Pills

Recommended Posts

Yes, there is a risk with blood clots, strokes, and heart attack with oral contraceptives. But it is not advised to quit taking your BC for surgery. You have a significant increase in risk with smoking. It is more important that those who smoke quit before surgery. But do not stop birth control. The risks of blood clots are low, esp. the younger you are, and plus you would not want to risk getting pregnant within a year after the band.
