Resource Summary

Clinical Question:
How does the venous thromboembolism (VT) risk compare across varying hormonal contraceptions?

Bottom-line:
Due to limits in the evidence^ there is real uncertainty whether the risks of VT vary with different hormonal contraceptives. If they do^ the increased risk appears to be about 1 extra VT per year for 2000 women.
