I believe this as I was on Diane 35 and developed blood clots and trombosis in my legs whereafter I was advised to stop using the pills. I have also read a news paper aricle on the company producing the contraceptive patch evra whom was being sued by a woman who developed complications like blood clots from the patch.

Be careful.

When I used the pill Ginette 35 my Dr told me to use a disprin with it as the pill thickens your blood. To prevent clots I had to use the CV100 disprin everyday when taking the pill.
