Major Birth Control Recall Just in Time For Valentine's Day
Is this worldwide ? What country was it in
yikes is right! people will be running for condoms.
And to get the morning after pill!
Ah, it's times like this where I am thankful for Implanon.
That is certainly scary.
Pfizer is based in the United States and the recall is based here. I can't find anything that says if they shipped anywhere else but they list lot numbers so if people have them they can probably check that way.
An excellent idea.
I'm not sure how trustworthy the article is. It says this:
and it IS true that those birth control products increase the risk of blot clots. But so does any other product containing estrogen, birth control or not.
So I'm reluctant to swallow the rest of the article as written.
Still, it's rather scary all the same.
Holy crap that article scared me!!! I called my GYN and she immediately said "you're ok." So my BC wasn't on the recall list, but still when you put your trust in a little pill.... I can't even imagine having a baby at 40!!!
The FDA recall is very real.
Pfizer Announces Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Lo/Ovral-28 and Norgestrel/Ethinyl Estradiol Tablets Due to Possibility of Inexact Tablet Counts or Out of Sequence Tablets
People who get paid by the pharmaceutical companies that make the drugs shouldn't also sit on the government panels that determine if they are safe for public consumption. It's unethical. I believe that a lot of the kerfuffle was over that.
From what I understand, Yaz has a higher risk than normal birth control pills. I don't believe that there was any dispute over whether normal birth control pills also cause clots but the frequency and risk level of each, Yaz being comparatively more dangerous. I think that article failed to clarify that. Here's one from the New York Times about how studies have found Yaz and Yasmin to be more dangerous than traditional birth control pills.
my sister was 41 when she had her 2nd son. pregnancy wasn't expected. she was a nervous wreck. joey is now 12 and he totally rocks.
