Answer

See the list below:

  • As mentioned above, life-long antiplatelet agents are generally suggested if a stroke occurred because of their benefit in reducing stroke and their relatively low morbidity.

  • Given the potential pro-coagulant effects of estrogen, especially in smokers, oral contraceptives and hormonal replacement therapy is often avoided. No data exists to support or refute this strategy.
