Patient :Hi there! My name is Rachel and I am 18 years old. I am currently sexually active. I have Factor V Leiden (homogeneous) and was wondering if there was any kind of birth control that I am able to take given this condition, particularly any kind of medication rather than surgeries/contraception that must be inserted. Or is there any kind of "Plan-B" pill or procedure I could take/do in order to prevent pregnancy? Thank you so much for your time & have a great day!
