Risk Factors for Oral Contraception Dangers

Oral contraception, also called “the pill,” is recognized as a safe, effective method of birth control—for healthy, nonsmoking women, that is. However, the pill has many potentially adverse side effects, and the risk of experiencing these side effects depends on several different factors.

Unfortunately, some oral contraceptives can cause harmful complications even if you are a healthy, nonsmoking individual. YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella have all been linked to serious problems such as myocardial infarction and stroke. If you have suffered health problems due to taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, please contact a YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.

Factors for Increased Risk of Adverse Effects

YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella all contain synthetic versions of estrogen and progestin, which are hormones that affect ovulation and can have serious side effects. For instance, progestin can increase your risk of atherosclerosis. Normally, this is not enough to cause health problems in healthy women. However, women who already have atherosclerosis may develop complications. Other things that can increase your risk of experiencing adverse side effects include:

  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • Being over the age of 35
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Epilepsy
  • Sickle cell disease

Before you begin taking the pill, it is important to discuss your medical history with your doctor so that you can choose the birth control method that is safest for you.
