Recently, women who have suffered from Yasmin problems have been increasingly coming forward to report their injuries. Serious side effects of Yaz birth control including blood clots, stroke, and heart attack have been linked with women using the birth control. Consumer groups and some members of the medical community are questioning Yaz side effects and the increased risk for blood clots and strokes.

Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella are considered “fourth generation” combination birth control pills. They contain a newer type of synthetic progestin called drospirenone. This contraceptive is one of the most popular contraceptives and has been heavily marketed to women throughout the United States promoting its use in treating premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).

Yaz problems including stroke, blood clots, DVT and pulmonary embolism have been reported. Side effects of Yaz may result due to changes in your blood clotting system. Some people associate the higher risk of developing blood clots, strokes, and heart attacks with the type of synthetic progestin in Yaz birth control called drospirenone. Side effects should be immediately evaluated by a doctor because complications can cause serious injuries and be life-threatening. Currently neither the FDA or the manufacturer has issued a Yaz recall and it remains one of the most popular birth control pills.

Yasmin side effects include:

• blood clots in the legs (DVT)

• blood clots in the lungs (Pulmonary embolism)

• stroke

• heart attack

• gall bladder disease

• pancreatitis

Yaz Blood Clots

Yaz blood clot problems including DVT and PE is a serious Yaz side effect reported by women using this fourth-generation birth control pill. Many women with no family history of blood clots have suffered from life threatening injuries involving clots. The type of hormones in birth control pills can increase the risk of developing blood clots which can lead to serious problems especially if they are not diagnosed early. After having a blood clot many women are then faced with life-changing side effects including: being on blood thinners, pain in the area of the clot, future pregnancy problems, and increased risk of developing another clot.

Yaz Stroke

Yaz strokes are serious Yaz side effects reported by women using this fourth-generation contraceptive. There are two main types of strokes: ischemic stroke (caused by blockage) and hemorrhagic stroke (caused by bleeding). Women who are otherwise healthy with no prior stroke problems have experienced life threatening events involving a stroke where no other health issues exist. One of the serious risks with Yaz birth control and other fourth-generation contraceptives is the increased chance of developing a blood clot which can lead to a stroke or heart attack. After having a stroke many women are then faced with life-changing side effects including: permanent loss of movement, difficulty communicating, and permanent loss of brain functions.
