The headline was an exact representation of what was to be expected in the article.
The article starts out with a testimonial story from a woman who started experiencing symptoms that medical professionals brushed off as dehydration. The article includes a link to her exact story as well, “What Every Woman Needs to Know About Blood Clots” which outlines right there one of the risk factors that was mentioned in the headline.
The article specifically included relevant information to me when I read,
“According to a Canadian Broadcasting Company report in June 2013, birth control pill manufacturer Bayer paid out in excess of $1 billion to settle thousands of birth control pill lawsuits in the United States. Those settlements were all related to two low-dose contraception pills, Yaz and Yasmin. At the same time, an investigation by the CBC revealed that pharmacists suspected the deaths of 23 Canadian women were attributable to those two same pills.”
This is where the headline became justified for me. I was using this specific brand of birth control pill for several years until recently, without ever having known that these risk factors were causing death.
At this point I can say that the headline did solve the problem by giving me very important and useful information that I will definitely use to take action.
