Yaz side effects

December 23, 2009

Yaz and Yasmin have recently been the subject of numerous lawsuits across the country as women taking these fourth generation birth control pills have experienced serious and sometimes deadly side effects.

Yasmin and Yaz contain a progestin called “drospirenone,” which poses increased health risks over birth controls containing other types of progestin. Drospirenone is unique to Yaz and Yasmin, making these birth control pills, and their generic counterpart Ocella, more dangerous than other pills.

While drospirenone dramatically increases the health risks associated with using birth control, there is no evidence that it makes Yaz or Yasmin more effective at preventing pregnancy than older generation birth control pills.

Yaz/Yasmin side effects may increase the risk of:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Kidney stones
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Cardiac arrhythmia
  • Pancreatitis
  • Death
