A 21-year-old teaching assistant died suddenly after taking a contraceptive pill, Rigevidon®, her parents have claimed.

Fallan Kurek was rushed to Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield, after collapsing at home in Tamworth on May 11, but died three days later.

The cause was recorded as a pulmonary embolism on her lung but her parents, Brian and Julia Kurek, said doctors thought it might have been down to a contraceptive pill she had been taking for just 25 days.

‘She took her pill, then she got up, and then began walking downstairs,’ her dad Brian, 52, said.

‘But as she got half way down the stairs she collapsed. I got to the bottom of the stairs and she just went limp in my arms.’
