Patient :Had DVT in both legs, and PE in both lungs in December. Have been on Coumadin ever since. Now my periods are crazy heavy and the clots are HUGE (bigger than the size of a fist). I am now anemic (Dr. thinks due to heavy periods). Gyno wants to put me on progestin pills - but don't birth control pills increase the risk of blood clots and how would this help with the anemia?
Symptoms: Periods that are horrible. Blood clots that are huge, massive amounts of blood lost.
