A study from the British Medical Journal has found that Yasmine and Yaz are linked to an increase risk of blood clots.
The study shows that clots are due to the chemical drospirenone, which are unique in Bayer’s Yasmine birth control pills. Women from across the nation have filed lawsuits against Bayer Pharmaceuticals including 25 women in California who have recently filed a joint lawsuit.
Doctors have said that all birth control pills may carry a risk for blood clots and strokes but Yasmine’s risk is higher compared to others. Symptoms to watch out for are unusual chest pain, shortness of breathe, cough and pain in your legs.
