According to Dr. Santiago Palacios, Director of the Palacios Institute for Women’s Health and Medicine, “thromboembolic events associated to combined hormonal contraceptives (CHC) are believed to affect between 8 and 12 women out of every 10,000. For women who do not take contraceptives, the risk falls to 4 out of every 10,000, and for women using progestogen-only pills it has been shown that it actually impacts between 2 and 4 women out of 10,000, an even lower rate than the general population. The risk of a thromboembolic event is therefore three times lower than with CHCs.1”
