Yaz and Yasmin are oral contraceptives taken for pregnancy prevention. Many women who have taken Yaz and Yasmin have suffered severe and life-threatening side effects. Tragically, some women have even died from taking Yaz and Yasmin.
Side effects of Yasmin and Yaz include:
- Heart attack
- Blood clots
- Pulmonary embolism
- Gallbladder damage
- Deep vein thrombosis
Yaz and Yasmin are more dangerous than other oral contraceptives because they both contain drospirenone. Drospirenone is a diuretic that can drastically increase a woman’s potassium levels. Significantly increased potassium levels can lead to both blood clots and gallbladder damage.
Women who have been injured as a result of taking Yaz or Yasmin birth control are eligible to bring a Yaz lawsuit and seek compensation for their losses. Contact our Connecticut Yaz injury lawyers.
