The pill and thrombosis
Thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot which may block a blood vessel.
Thrombosis sometimes develops in the deep veins of the legs (deep vein thrombosis). If a blood clot that is away from the vein, which has been formed, it may rise and block the arteries of the lung, causing "pulmonary embolism".
Deep vein thrombosis is a rare condition. The risk of venous thromboembolism in women is highest in the first year of the very first use of combined pills.
Venous thromboembolism may occur regardless of whether the taking or not taking a pill. Can also occur during pregnancy. The risk is higher in using the pill than dispense pills, but considerably lower than the risk in pregnancy.
Blood clots can very rarely occur in the vessels of the heart (and cause heart attack) or the brain (and cause shock).
In very rare cases, clots can occur in the vessels of the liver, gastrointestinal tract, kidney and eye.
Occasionally thrombosis may cause serious permanent disability and even death.

The doctor may advise you to stop taking the pill a few weeks before the planned surgery or during the period of limited mobility. He will recommend and continue to take pills after restore.

The Pill and cancer
In women, breast cancer is diagnosed in women taking the pill slightly more often than women of the same age who do not use it. This slight increase in the number of diagnosed cases of breast cancer diagnoses gradually disappears during the period of 10 years after discontinuation. It is uncertain whether this increased risk is caused by the pill. The results may be due to the fact that these women are tested more frequently and so carcinoma is diagnosed earlier.
Benign (non-malignant) and even more rarely malignant liver tumors were observed in some cases in women taking the pill. These tumors may cause internal bleeding. Consult your doctor if you experience severe pain in the stomach.
The most important risk factor is a cancer of the cervix caused by human papilloma virus. In some epidemiological studies have some results, according to which continuous combined pill can lead to a more pronounced manifestation of the increased risk. It is uncertain whether this increased risk is caused by the pill as it may be due to the effects of other factors (e.g., the regular check-up of the cervix and sexual behavior, including the use of barrier contraception).
