Heart Attacks from Blood Clots

A woman taking the birth control medications Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella may experience a heart attack due to the development of blood clots. These oral contraceptives contribute to the formation of blood clots, which can build up in the body’s blood vessels. Eventually, these clots can break off and move throughout the body. If a blood clot reaches the heart, it can stop the basic functions of the myocardial muscle.

If you have experienced a myocardial infarction or blood clot after taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, you may be entitled to financial compensation to aid in your recovery. Contact the Yasmin birth control attorneys of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today for more information regarding your rights and options.

Damage to the Heart from Blood Clots

When a blood clot reaches the heart, it inhibits proper blood circulation to the myocardial muscle which essentially cuts off oxygen to the heart. As the heart loses oxygen, it can no longer maintain healthy tissue. As a result, the muscle tissue in the heart will begin to die. When the muscle tissue cannot continue to pump blood, the circulatory system will begin to fail entirely. The rest of the body cannot receive oxygenated blood, causing damage to each of those systems.

Over time, this can lead to a heart attack, which can later cause problems such as:

  • Increased risk of later heart attacks
  • Unusual heartbeat
  • Death

Any damage to the heart should be treated with speed and accuracy in order to reduce the risk of serious complications.
