Yaz side effects have been reported in women throughout the United States. Side effects of Yasmin include a higher risk of venous thrombosis (blood clot). The consumer protection group Public Citizen has advocated that the FDA ban third generation contraceptives due to there being a lack of studies examining the serious side effects. Yaz is considered a fourth generation contraceptive that also uses a combination of hormones including a new synthetic hormone drospirenone. Public Citizen has stated “There is no medical reason that you should be using Yasmin rather than one of the older pills containing the progestins norgestrel, levonorgestrel or norethindrone.”
Some women with no history of blood clots have experienced life threatening side effects of Yasmin involving blood clots. These blood clots often develop in the legs and are referred to as deep vein thrombosis (DVT). However, blood clots can develop in many different areas of the body including the pelvis, eye, head, arm and lungs. The following symptoms may indicate more serious health problems caused by Yaz. Blood clots:
• sudden severe headaches
• unusual swelling or pain in the legs or arms
• sharp or crushing chest pain or coughing blood
• eye problems such as blurred or double vision or complete loss of vision
• pain in the back of the lower leg
The side effects of Yaz can increase based on several health and risk factors. Increased risks include: women over 35 years of age, diabetes, smoking more than 15 cigarettes a day, and high level of blood cholesterol or fat.
