Join the National Blood Clot Alliance (NBCA) during National Women’s Health Week (NWHW), May 13-19, 2018, as we work with the Alexandra L. Rowan Memorial Foundation to provide women with life-saving information about birth control and blood clots, and to help them determine, along with their doctor, their risk for blood clots and their best birth control options. NBCA has some exciting, new efforts planned for NWHW this week. Find out how you can help share life-saving information about women and blood clots during NWHW here, and make sure to sign up for our Thunderclap effort this week here.
In addition to the risk for blood clots connected to hormonal birth control, women also may be at risk during pregnancy and childbirth, and when estrogen is used in the treatment of menopause symptoms later in life. Learn more at our dedicated Women & Blood Clots web portal here.
