Ortho Evra Birth Control Patch allegedly linked to heart attack and stroke

With 60% more estrogen than birth control pills, the health risks of Ortho Evra Patch are increased

New York City, New York - The popular, widely promoted birth control patch contains more hormones than the traditional birth control pill and these hormones, progestin, estrogen, and norelgestromin, are delivered directly into the blood stream via a transdermal skin patch.

Whether caused by the high levels of hormones or the delivery method, Ortho Evra has been linked to blood clots, heart disease, stroke, and death in young adult women.

With reports of women dying from unexpected heart problems, the FDA recently asked the maker of Ortho Evra to revise the label to warn against the risk of blood clot, stroke, or heart attack. A woman's risk of these side effects also increases with age, smoking habits, and pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.

A leading law firm, advertising on, offers free case evaluations to women who have suffered blood clots, stroke, or other side effects from Ortho Evra
