There is a theoretical risk of venous thromboembolism (problems due to the formation of blood clots in the veins). However, in clinical trials, this was a rare occurrence in only 4 patients who "all had multiple risk factors for thromboembolism" pre-existing. To minimize this risk, we do not prescribe to patients with pre-existing risk for blood clots (e.g. who are on blood thinners).
