What are the risks of taking Lucette?
- Blood clots: the oestrogen in Lucette can cause your blood to clot more easily and blood clots can lead to deep vein thrombosis (clot in your leg), pulmonary embolism (clot in your lung), stroke and heart attack. The risk is low (between 9 to 12 out of 10,000 women per year) but it is higher when compared to women who are not taking any oral contraceptive (2 out of 10,000 women). The risk decreases after your first year of taking Lucette for the first time and returns to normal within a few weeks of stopping taking it.
- Cancer: research has shown that the combined pill can slightly increase the risk of developing breast and cervical cancer. However, 10 years after you stop taking the pill your risk goes back to normal. Your breast cancer risk is slightly higher if there is a history of breast cancer in your family, or you are overweight.
