File size: 459kb | Date: 4 June 2020 | Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - PDF

Full question: For women starting a CHC the first year seems to be when the highest risk of VTE.

Should we be more careful in those women with a higher BMI who may not be contraindicated to CHC? In smokers? Would it also be more of concern in those women who are shielding who may have more of a concern that covid may be more severe in them?
