I am a 15 yr old girl and in October 2007 I was hospitalized with blood clots in my brain. I got these blood clots because I was on the birth control nuva ring. I was on birth control for irregular periods. Before nuva ring I was on a birth control pill, loestrin. I was on the pill approximatly one month when I got chest pain and leg pain. My doctor took me off the pill and put me on nuva ring. Nuva ring is stronger than the pill which I did not know at that time. My doctor told me if I had any problems I could take it out and I would be fine. Two months after I was put on nuva ring I had headaches and vomiting for 8 days and saw five doctors before they figured out what was wrong. I went to the hospital that was connected to the clinic I went to twice and told them about the nuva ring. Noone gave me a cat scan, they just told me I had a virus. I was in the hospital six days and in ICU two days. I should have had a stroke. I should be brain dead now. I should have died. The doctors told me I was a miracle kid. I still suffer from massive headaches daily. I can't do a lot of things normal kids my age can do. When I have any surgery or have children I will have to go on a blood thinner shot. I still have doctors that I see and will have to continue to see for the rest of my life. Lately sometimes Ill be sitting down and doing something and Ill forget what im doing for a min or so and it takes me a lil bit to figure out wat I was doing again. Is this something I should be worried about??
