Drospirenone and Your Health

Oral contraceptives Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella all contain the synthetic progestin drospirenone. This artificial hormone is designed to act like progesterone, a naturally occurring hormone that helps to regulate aspects of menstruation and pregnancy. Found only in Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella, drospirenone is a newer synthetic progestin that is thought to act more like progesterone than other compounds that have been created. While this may make drospirenone more effective for birth control, it can also have life-threatening effects on some women.

Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella all contain 3 milligrams of drospirenone. While this may seem like a very small dosage, studies and reports show that it can cause life-threatening health problems in high-risk women. In some individuals a 3 milligram dosage of drospirenone can cause hyperkalemia, which is an elevated potassium level in the body. The body must maintain a balance between salt and water levels to function properly, and when potassium levels rise it throws off this balance and can cause blood clotting and heart problems for some women.

Blood clots can lead to life-threatening and even fatal health problems. A blood clot can cause a heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, cardiac arrhythmia, gallbladder disease, and other health problems. Some women may not know that they are vulnerable to these complications and could suddenly find themselves internally injured from a blood clot after taking an oral contraceptive with drospirenone.

If you are currently taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella and have suffered health problems, consider contacting a lawyer immediately and talking with your doctor about switching to another contraceptive.

If you have been hurt by an oral contraceptive drug containing drospirenone, an attorney can help you initiate your claim for compensation. Your lawyer will fight to hold the drug manufacturer legally accountable for your injuries and damages and will fight on your behalf to get you the compensation that you may deserve.
