probably not but coagulation could be a problem, but your doctor will assess whether you can be treated and whether you need more or longer anticoagulationanticoagulation.

What are your thoughts on CCSVI treatment and taking the contraceptive pill?
My daughter recently called her gynecologist's office to change her contraceptive pill and spoke briefly about the possibility of having CCSVI treatment. Her doctor called her back and said she was very concerned about my daughter having any kind of vascular treatment whilst being on the pill because of the risk of blood clots.
Given that we are only just learning about blood flow and MS do you think the pill could be an issue?
contaceptives and steroids increase thrombogenicity. thus damaged intima is more likely to form clot on it. this can be counteracted by anticoagulation
