Thanks for your quick Reply Doctor. However would the contraceptive Mirena which is an estrogen free intrauterine contraceptive be an optio? :) Thanks again!
Mirena releases very low dose estrogen. And blood clots would be extremely rare (almost non existent) as hormone is almost not absorbed (or very negligible amount) in the blood. Doctors would not be having a consensus on this. But personally I would prescribe an IUD without an hormone with your medical history. This is to exert an extreme caution.
It is pleasure assisting you.
Thank you you've been extremely helpful. Keep up the good work!
You are welcome.
