Language Loss from a Stroke
A stroke causes substantial injury to the brain that can diminish a person’s ability to use language. Strokes have been linked to the use of Yasmin, Yaz, or Ocella, which can cause blood clots to prevent sufficient oxygen from reaching and moving through the brain. As a result, the cells in the brain begin to die at an extremely accelerated pace. Some of these cells may be parts of the brain responsible for language or speech.

Language and Speech Disorders from Strokes
The birth control medications Yasmin, Yaz, and Ocella have all been tied to the production of blood clots that can cause stroke. The damage resulting from a stroke may significantly affect the language centers of the brain or the nerves that help produce and interpret spoken or written language. If a person suffers a stroke, they may develop the following disorders:
- Aphasia, or language loss
- Dysgraphia, or difficulty with writing
- Dysarthria, or difficulty with physically speaking
A person suffering from these disorders may seek treatment to repair some of their language skills. However, these disorders often require substantial therapy to make any improvements. In some cases, the brain damage may be so extensive that it might never allow for complete rehabilitation.
If you have taken the birth control medications of Yasmin, Yaz, and Ocella, the consequences of a stroke may leave you entitled to pursue legal action against the drug manufacturer.
