Death and birth control


Forensic nurses are regularly involved with examining the dead and helping to determine the cause of death. It can be important in the case of a deceased female to have a record of contraceptive use and past abortions. These birth control measures can affect the body system by causing hypertension, thromboembolic disorders, glucose intolerance, or hormone changes. In abuse cases it is helpful to know if the woman was on her menstrual period to help identify bleeding as natural or a result of trauma.
