Letter: Risks and benefits of contraceptive pill

From Ms R. Taylor

Sir: With regard to the dangers and inadequate warnings on Pill leaflets, the warnings about thrombosis et al in my Pill's instructions are decorated with a border of pink flowers. On the front of the leaflet, there is a picture of a "flower fairy" and the information inside refers to the Pill's users as "girls".

Yours faithfully,


Leatherhead, Surrey
