Side Effects Of Yasmin And Yaz

When Bayer Healthcare introduced Yasmin in 2001 and Yaz in 2006, the company promoted the drugs not only as a new kind of birth control pill, but as cure-alls for everything from menstrual cramps to acne. The company continued to promote the drugs, despite warnings from the Food and Drug Administration.

Both Yasmin and Yaz contain a synthetic progesterone called drospirenone, which has been linked to increased levels of potassium in the blood. This can lead to a number of health risks, including:

  • Blood clots in the legs and lungs
  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Gall bladder disease
  • Pancreatitis
  • Migraine headaches
  • Kidney disorders

Even if you have not suffered any health problems from taking Yasmin or Yaz, you may face health risks in the future as the result of taking these drugs, including increased risk of blood clots and stroke.
