One of the most common, efficient and convenient methods of contraception is hormonal contraception. Due to its popularity among young women, the safety of this method should be taken into consideration. Alternative ways of hormonal application are used and additional prothrombotic factors are being researched in order to minimize prothrombotic activity. The paper presents current data on the relationship between hormonal contraception and vascular complications based on peer-reviewed medical journals that were published between the years 2001 and 2013.
