all true. i guess just be aware. my friend had developed this cough that was puzzling to her internist and was put on allergy meds, thinking it was that. apparently it was the clots. i don't know if she mentioned that she was on the pill to her dr. as long as you are aware. and you are right, people die from surgery, meds, all the time. there is always a risk.
and i can relate to your periods. i went through that, had 10 yrs of perimenopause which started out heavy, shorter cycles, and then just got worse and worse. i was very lucky and went into menopause at 49 yrs!! i loved menopause and love being postmenopausal. i remember having to carry very large pocketbooks when i went out to carry all the 'supplies.' plus, it was very unpleasant and even at times scary. dr said it was hormones.... eventually you will reach menopause, has to be soon, right??
good luck, hope the pills do the trick!
