Interesting Study RE: The Pill

That’s good news for women who need to take the pill for medical reasons. But the article didn’t mention what the study concluded about the increased risk of emolism in women who take oral contraceptives, and especially those that smoke.

From the article:
Around 12 million women in the United States and some 3 million women in Britain take the contraceptive pill.

Around 12 million women in the United States . . . . .take the contraceptive pill.

Is that all? Seems awfully low for a country with 150 million women.

Yeah that's what I thought too. I wonder how they're getting their numbers: polls from users? polls from doctor's offices? Online polls? The article didn't say. Just like it didn't talk about PEs. Almost all the women I know are on ABCs. And unfortunately, even some of the girls at school too. So the number seems too low to me as well. :shrug:
