Dangers of Blood Thinning Medications
A person who has taken the birth control medications Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella may be at risk of developing serious health problems that require blood thinning medication as a treatment. Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella can all create a variety of health concerns for users that may cause damage to the heart and blood vessels. In particular, a blood clot can result in a patient having to take blood thinners. However, blood thinners carry their own risks and can cause additional harm to a patient.

Blood Thinner Dangers
A person taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella can suffer injuries due to blood clots and heart problems caused by these drugs. In particular, issues like pulmonary embolism and heart arrhythmia can potentially threaten the lives of women taking these birth control medications. In some cases, the treatment for these conditions can pose serious risks themselves. Blood thinners are used to promote blood flow, reducing the chances of new clots developing and helping blood move throughout the body. However, blood thinning medications can result in the following problems:
- Difficulty stopping bleeding
- Development of osteoporosis
- Warfarin necrosis, which can lead to widespread tissue death
- Liver damage
Although they are used to treat dangerous conditions, blood thinners come with dangers of their own, and can even threaten a patient’s life in some extreme circumstances.
If you have suffered after taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, there may be legal action available against the drugs’ manufacturers. To learn more about your options at this time, contact the Yasmin birth control lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.
