I was put on Loestrin 24 and ended up getting pregnant. I told the doctor for months something was "bothering" me in my pelvis area, everyone ignored it and said it was due to carrying twins. I would feel dizzy a lot and my legs and pelvis area felt very strange and could never feel comfortable. This was not my first pregnancy so I know what it feels like. After a while I becam very, very sick and was hospitalized. EVEN while in the hospital everyone ignored my complaint of something bothering me in the pelvis region, I lost one child and was on strict bed rest in the hospital when fever sprang up. Still everyone ignores my complaint, I then lose my second child, end up having to get a blood transfusion, get put into surgery and then ICU, still no one listens. I finally get sent home and fight fever for almost two weeks and then the whole time the same pain in my pelvis is becoming so hard to deal with. I end up going to the ER and finally a doc there listens about the "feeling in my pelvis is bothering me" and turns out I had a blood clot in my ovarian vein, which I found out later was the cause of losing my twins, the clot was blocking blood flow to the uterus. I was told by the doc in the ER that I should have been dead, something was keeping me alive I don't know, that may sound crazy, but according to what was found and how long my complaint was, its a miracle. I am very angry about losing my twins, over something that could have been treated in the beginning and may have prevented them from being born so prematurely. I am also angry that I took this drug to prevent this type of situation (preganancy) and it failed and also put me in danger and almost had two older children motherless.
