The Costs of Hypertension
Hypertension is one of the many side effects that may result from taking oral contraceptives Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella. Also referred to as high blood pressure, hypertension puts a high level of stress on blood vessels, stretching vessel walls and possibly causing them to rupture. Women who take one of these types of oral contraceptives could have an increased risk of developing hypertension, especially if they have a family history of the condition.
High blood pressure can be costly for both your health and your wallet. People who develop hypertension are at greater risk of having a blood vessel rupture, which can cause serious internal injuries. Stroke, heart attack, and kidney damage are just some of the possible injuries that high blood pressure can cause. Women with hypertension may be prescribed a costly blood pressure medication and may also have trouble finding affordable insurance because they are classified as “higher risk”.
The trouble with hypertension is that patients often don’t experience any symptoms to indicate that they have a health problem. Instead, high blood pressure can go undetected for many months or even years until it develops into something much more serious. If you are taking or are considering taking oral contraceptives Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, talk to your doctor about the risk of developing hypertension. Consider having your blood pressure checked regularly to monitor any changes that may occur after starting your birth control.
Hypertension is a silent killer that can cause serious health problems with little to no warning. If you have developed high blood pressure or other related complications as a result of taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, consider contacting a side effect lawyer immediately. You may be entitled to compensation for any injuries and damages caused by taking a prescribed oral contraceptive.
