Jersey City, NJ, February 23, 2007 - Bagolie Friedman Injury Lawyers, offering aggressive representation and free consultations, has launched an Ortho Evra Birth Control Patch Danger site in response to the problems encountered with the Ortho Evra Contraceptive Patch. Ortho Evra birth-control patches may cause an increased risk of blood clots , heart attacks and of strokes.
The Ortho Evra contraceptive patch delivers increased levels of hormones to the bloodstream through the skin. The FDA says " In general, increased estrogen exposure may increase the risk of blood clots and estrogen use is linked to blood clots in the legs and lungs and other clotting problems such as strokes and heart attacks. " Bagolie Friedman has responded with an up-to-the-moment website that will serve as a free legal resource to those concerned about the Ortho Evra Birth Control Patch.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) should immediately ban third-generation oral contraceptives (OCs) containing desogestrel because they almost double the risk of life-threatening blood clots compared to older forms of birth control pills. Public Citizen filed a petition with the FDA on February 6 requesting that they ban these drugs.
