We know that birth control can slightly increase risk of blood clots in women. We also know that women with sickle cell disease are at increased risk of blood clots in general. We are looking for women with and without sickle cell disease who are not on birth control to take part in this study to help us learn more about markers of blood clotting.
At the first visit, we will coordinate with your primary care or gynecology provider to meet you in clinic. We will have you fill out a survey and draw 1 blood sample. 3 months later, we will have you visit the lab for another blood draw and another survey.
