Hormones in Birth Control Methods

The majority of contraceptive methods used by women contain different forms of hormones that work to prevent pregnancy. Birth control may disrupt the natural cycle of hormones, or it can suppress hormones that would normally help with fertilization. While this can prevent the unwanted consequences of unplanned pregnancy, some contraceptives can alter your hormones too much, leading to severe health issues.

One oral contraceptive that has been linked to negative side effects is YAZ, also called Yasmin or Ocella. Studies have shown that YAZ can increase your chances of developing deep vein thrombosis or suffering from strokes. If you are a victim of YAZ, you should contact a Yasmin lawsuit attorney from Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 today for a free case evaluation.

Hormones and Your Body

You can come into contact with birth-preventing hormones through several different ways. Not only can you take oral medications, but you can also absorb these chemicals through skin patches or devices that are inserted into the vagina or uterus. Additionally, some women choose to have shots of hormones. There are several hormonal differences between these different birth control methods, including:

  • The type of hormone you utilize
  • The amount of hormones that you receive
  • The duration of contact with the hormone
  • The way that you absorb the hormones

Common Hormones in Contraception

The two most common types of hormones in contraception are estrogen and progesterone. For some women with health problems, estrogen should be avoided. However, many types of birth control contain a mix of these two hormones. Also, there are several synthetic hormones sometimes used, such as:

  • Depot medroxyprogesterone acetate
  • Drospirenone
  • Etonogetrel

Contact Us

Drospirenone, a synthetic progestin found in YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella, may cause you to suffer from adverse side effects that are not associated with other contraceptives. If you have developed health issues that may be related to YAZ, contact a YAZ lawyer from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187 to discuss your case.
