Knowing the Side Effects of Yaz
Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella were all brand names marketing drospirenone, a chemical used as an oral contraceptive for women. While this synthetic progestin was shown to be an effective way to prevent pregnancy, it has a number of side effects of varying severity which could potentially seriously injure the women who take them. Being familiar with these side effects may be instrumental to recognizing the more serious dangers associated with the drug.
