Your post raises a lot of questions. Why did it take 3 weeks to diagnose a stroke? Did you actually get it in writing from a cerebrovascular surgeon that the stroke was caused by your birth control? Were you taking the (discontued) OrthoEvra patch? How about Yasmin? Did you have other risk factors for blood clots? The best thing you can do is gather your medical records and take them to a local/upstate medical malpractice attorney. Call the Monroe county bar association for a referral.
