Regarding the Emergency Contraception Pill, the "evaluation report of approved medication containing levonorgestrel" clarifies researches that give cause for the marketing of the active principle in the whole universe. This arouses frequent hostile reactions and highlights two dangers: a possible "ectopic pregnancy and a "venous thrombosis" risk. This worrying cardiovascular disease occurs by the appearance of a blood clot in a deep blood vessel. A complication occurs when part of the blood clot breaks off, travels through the bloodstream and blocks any vein of the lungs. The report said that consequences are significant. For example, in a sample of 1,379 women who took at least one dose, 426 suffered from bleeding (30.89%); 189 nausea (13.71%); 184 fatigue (13.34%); 183 abdominal pain (13.27%), 142 headaches (10.3%) and other complications such as breast pain, dysentery, anxieties and dizziness.
