my gyno just Rx'ed me microgestin. Said it sounded like the dosage of previous pills has been too high.
What do you know about it?
PS: Thanks in advance for helping me out.:-)

I want everyone to know, that taking Microgestin put me into the hospital for a week for blood clots in my lungs. I was about to turn 20, I don't smoke and I play volleyball since the 6th grade and had been taking Microgestin since sophmore year of high school for cramps mostly. On into college I was taking it, then for a few weeks I was getting winded from just walking up a flight of stairs and couldn't even practice because I was out of breath after warm-up. I thought it was just my asthma acting up until I went to the hospital. Nothing showed up until I took a blood test that wasn't given to me aside from the many other blood tests I was having. They told me I had blood clots in my lungs. After some time, we found that my birth control Mircogestin, was the source. I was given blood thinners and had to inject myself with them after leaving the hospital and had to go for routine blood tests every week for the next 6 months and was told I'd have to stop volleyball. IT WAS A NIGHTMARE AND I WISH IT ON NO WOMAN. IF YOU'RE TAKING IT STOP!! I WANT TO TELL MY STORY TO EVERYONE because I'm still mad that no one told me that blood clots were a risk, despite being a non-smoker. Ever since I stopped taking them, I've been healthy.
