Estrogenic herbs – blood clot risk, like birth control? Or not?

Estrogenic herbs – blood clot risk, like birth control? Or not?

[ad_1]

Hey guys,

I’m F18 with past acne issues, and some excess facial hair. I’m currently taking *spearmint* (two capsules a day).

I get really bad migraines with aura/regular eye disturbance. I’m irrationally scared of having a stroke or a blood clot. In fact, I would never go on the pill due to this very real risk.

It is to my understanding that the estrogen in the pill can cause blood clots to form.

Do you guys think a potentially-estrogenic HERB like spearmint could be increasing my risk of forming a blood clot? Do any of you know about this at all – whether natural substances that increase estrogen in the body increase your risk of stroke/pulmonary embolism?

Thanks so much
