Diagnosing Deep Vein Thrombosis

A woman using the birth control drugs Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella may experience dangerous health problems because of the ability of these drugs to build blood clots in the bloodstream. Blood clots often form in the veins of the leg, sometimes causing a health problem known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This condition should be considered an emergency health concern and, if a person suspects they have it, they should be tested by a physician immediately.

If you have been experiencing pain in your leg in addition to swelling, you may be suffering from DVT and may require medical attention. These costs can prove substantial for many people. To learn more your legal rights if you have developed DVT after taking a birth control drug, contact a Yasmin lawyer of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187.

Testing for DVT

There are a variety of different tests available for a doctor to determine whether someone using Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella has developed a blood clot in their leg. Some of the current options for testing for this condition include:

  • A physical assessment of the leg and the patient’s reported symptoms
  • Ultrasound tests
  • Blood tests

These three methods can help a doctor determine whether or not a person is suffering from deep vein thrombosis. If they do have a blood clot in their leg, emergency treatment may be required to avoid potentially life-threatening complications.
