Experience

This pill was not suitable for someone with my family history of DVTs and breast lumps but was still prescribed. A Breast Cancer specialist had to point this out to me after a PE and DVT

Experience after taking

All pains went away and I have had no further DVTs or PE episodes. My new Dr has said he would never prescribe it if not to help skin

Had a similar experience?
