Studies Link Yaz, Yasmin to Blood Clots

Posted on April 22nd, 2010 No Comments

Two studies from the Netherlands linked the use of Yasmin and Yaz birth control pills to various kinds of blood clots.

A study which examined blood clot risks in healthy Danish women ages 15 to 49 found that in 4,213 cases of various kinds of blood clots which were reported between 1995 and 2005, more than 2,000 occurred in women who used the popular birth control pills Yaz and Yasmin. The pills are made with the synthetic progestins: desogestrel, gestodone, and drospirenone. Each of the women had a higher risk for blood clots compared to those who used oral contraceptives made with an older form of progestin called levonorgestrel.

A second study involving 3,200 women in the Netherlands, found that those taking birth control containing levonorgestrel had a four times higher risk of getting blood clots than women taking no contraceptives. The same study, however, showed that women were 6.3 times more prone to blood clots if they used Yaz and Yasmin.

If you or someone you love has suffered blood clotting as a result of taking Yasmin, Yaz, or Ocella birth control, please contact the Yasmin lawsuit lawyers of Willams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today
