I’d have it checked out, they’ll most likely want an ultrasound, they’re painless. That will rule the DVT out.

Could be a muscle pull, could be a tendon or ligament, but it’s worth asking about.

Do you fly often? Sit around a lot? Cholesterol? Can you elaborate on the pain?

They have medications that can help if it is worse case scenario.

its likly a side effect from OCP’s

I went to a pulmonologist for an ultrasound where it was confirmed. I have DVT in my right calf. So far it hasn’t been a problem and I don’t know how long I have had it. My doctor prescribed me 2 low dose aspirin a day to manage it.


Birth control pills can cause DVT so I went off mine for good.
