Yaz, Yasmin


This site provides information and the latest news regarding Yasmin side effects and problems. This relatively new birth control has been marketed heavily to women in the United States and is one of the first contraceptives considered a “fourth generation” birth control pill. It is manufactured by Bayer which also markets Yaz birth control. Generic Yasmin is marketed as “Ocella” and is manufactured by Teva. Yasmin is a combination hormonal contraceptive. It contains the hormones ethinyl estradiol (estrogen) and drospirenone which is a synthetic form of progestin.

Recently, Yasmine problems have been increasingly reported. Serious side effects of Yasmin including blood clots, gallbladder disease, pancreatitis, stroke, and heart attack have been associated with women using the birth control. Consumer groups and members of the medical community are questioning Yasmin side effects and the increased risk for blood clots and strokes.

DVT and Pulmonary Embolism

Pulmonary embolism is a serious Yasmin side effect reported by women using this fourth-generation contraceptive. Venous thrombosis events have been linked to this contraceptive. Pulmonary embolism (PE), deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and ischemic strokes are some of the problems being associated with Yaz birth control.

Yaz side effects include:

  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Pulmonary embolism (PE)
  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Gallbladder problems

If you or a loved one has suffered from any of the harmful side effects of Yaz such as blood clots, stroke or heart attack you may be entitled to file a Yasmin lawsuit against the manufacturer. A lawyer with experience in birth control litigation can help evaluate your claim. Many women around the United States have suffered from life-threatening Yasmin birth control side effects. Unfortunately, most people don’t know that they may have important legal rights.
