Popular birth control pills Yaz and Yasmin have been linked with serious and sometimes fatal side effects. The side effects of the contraceptive include heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, and gall bladder disease.
Women are already twice as likely as men to develop gallstones, but the hormones in Yaz and Yasmin pills may increase the cholesterol levels in bile and restrict gallbladder movement. Gallstones can cause serious problems if they become trapped in the bile ducts.
