Synopsis

It was the symbol of women emancipation but the pill is now being challenged.

Cases of stroke, phlebitis and pulmonary embolism - sometimes leading to the death of young women taking so-called "3rd and 4th generation" pills - have raised an important debate about contraception. The pharmaceutical companies lobbying is creating confusion. Doctors, whom the public authorities try to warn against the dangers of these pills, keep prescribing to the detriment of more and more victims.
