Patient : I started taking birth control several years ago and 6 years ago switched to yaz and then switched to gianvi (the generic version) last year. My best friend takes the same birth control, gianvi, and just ended up in the hospital with a blood clot in both lungs. Now I am extremely concerned and wondering if I should stop my usuage of gianvi. I called my doctor and they said there is no need to worry but I am still concerned.
Am I just over reacting or should I discontinue use?
