On A Thing You Should Probably Read If You Use the NuvaRing

Soooo when that VF article came out my friends and I talked about it and one of my lovely, smart friends read up and there's a lot of talk on here about estrogen being the cause of the PE and blood clots but from what she found it's the level/generation of progestin that seems to be the cause:

http://contraception.about.com/od/thepill/tp/ProgestinTypes.htm

long story long, anything 3rd generation and above increases the blood-clot risk.
Still not sure how to go forward because from what I can gather we are all unique snowflakes and we all have different reactions to everything...

I want to add my own 'fairy tale' but I also am looking through these comments and basically all our fairy tales are very similar and we all are just awesome. "Beauty, Truth, Awesomeness. That's all it is."
