Contraceptives with stroke and MI


CONCLUSION. Thanks Dr Arand for the correct answer. Question section ,not much answeres. So I am concluding. Correct answer is Combined oral contraceptives ( ie those containing both estrogen and progesterone) are associated with an increase risk of ischemic stroke and myocardial infarction with a doubling of risk for those containing high - dose estrogen( >59microgram. Progesterone only contraceptives ( minipill,implant,depot injections),the levonorgestrel- releasing intrauterine device, and non hormonal contraceptives don't increase stroke risk.

Estrogen containing pill or deportes

I agree
