Pill woman dies of rare clot trouble.
Byline: John Kelly
A YOUNG woman died from a complication with the Pill 15 days after going to A&E with chest pains.
Abbey Parkes, 20, who had been taking Logynon for six years, was given painkillers and prescribed steroids then sent home.
But in August a rare blood clotting disorder, Factor V Leiden, caused a fatal pulmonary embolism, an inquest heard.
She was rushed from her Stoke home to the city's University Hospital but was pronounced dead less than two hours later. A&E consultant Dr Alexander Hart said: "More people have triplets than a pulmonary embolism on the Pill. That's how unusual this is."
North Staffs assistant coroner Margaret Jones said: "The deceased died from a complication of Logynon contraceptive drug therapy, further complicated by the previouslyunknown genetic Factor V Leiden clotting disorder."
