***This was not my cousin, but this was forwarded to me from a friend who had received the e-mail and I thought the information is very important and needs to be posted so that other women can be aware of this problem....  Thanks- Sheri***


Recently this past week, my cousin Nicole Dishuk (age 31...newly graduated student with a doctoral degree about to start her new career as a Doctor...) was flown into a nearby hospital, because she passed out.

They found a blood clot in her neck, and immediately took her by helicopter to the ER to operate. By the time they removed the right half of her skull to relieve the pressure on her brain; the clot had spread to her brain causing severe damage.

Since last Wednesday night, she was battling... they induced her into a coma to stop the blood flow, they operated 3 times... Finally, they said there was nothing left that they could do... they found multiple clots in the left side of her brain... the swelling wouldn't stop, and she was on life support...

She died at 4:30 yesterday. She leaves behind a husband, a 2yr old Brandon and a 4yr old Justin... The CAUSE of DEATH - they found was a birth control she was taking that allows you to only have your period 3 times a year... They said it interrupts life's menstrual cycle, and although it is FDA approved... shouldn't be - So to the women in my address book - I ask you to boycott this product & deal with your period once a month - so you can live the rest of the months that your life has in store for you.

*Please send this to every woman you know - you may save someone's life... Remember, you have a CYCLE for a reason!

Jun. 3, 2008 at 10:45 AM I have never thought those pills that supressed your period could be safe.  It's a part of a woman's life and I just deal with it.  It's just not normal to not have my period.  Just my opinion.

Jun. 3, 2008 at 10:53 AM I agree with you, bradcamsmom....  I have a condition called PCOS and I only have 1-2 periods a year...  My doctor is very concerned about it because he said that when you don't have a period, the lining in your uterus build up and that is what causes cancer...  That being said, why on earth would anyone make a birth control pill that supresses your period?!?!
