Bride-to-Be Says Birth Control Caused Stroke

Jordan Ward, 26, says her fiance convinced her to go to the hospital.

"When I did get the news, I was in shock," Ward told ABC's Los Angeles Station, KABC. "I'm 26 years old."

"Women should always be advised about the risks versus benefits versus alternatives to any form of birth control, and realize that while uncommon, if the worst case scenario happens to them, it is a big deal," Ashton said.

Ward had surgery at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, California, and she said her wedding will go on as planned.

"I'm so thankful for so many things, but especially for the fact that I still get to marry the man of my dreams," Ward told the station.

Ward was not immediately available for further comment to ABC News.
