  • All BC has that risk. it doesnt matter if she only smoked half a cig or one a day or even a puff smoking is smoking either way you look at it. Death doesnt care what age you are.

  • All BC pills have risks. They are not good for us.....it is politics that keeps them on the market and the fact that it makes big bucks for the pharmacies and companies that makes them...I am so sorry for your friend...I hope she gets well soon. And if it wasn't the pills that caused it, I pray they find the answers....
