Throughout their lives, women face crucial choices that can contribute to their risk of life-threatening blood clots. That risk is increased if she previously experienced a clot, has a family history of blood clotting, or has been diagnosed with a genetic or acquired clotting disorder.

In recognition of Women’s Health Month, join us for our May PEP Talk on Tuesday, May 14 at 7 p.m. as we explore the blood clot risk factors that are unique to women, and other topics including:

  • Medical gaslighting many women experience;
  • Opill, the estrogen-free new over-the-counter oral contraceptive;
  • Women’s mental health after a blood clot diagnosis;
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding on anticoagulants;
  • New discussions around the safety of hormone replacement therapy for individuals with a history of blood clots, and more
