Certain oral contraceptives, such as the fourth generation birth control pills, Yaz and Yasmin, have been linked to gallstone disease.
A study was done on women who have taken that type of birth control and it found that these women had a higher chance to develop a gallbladder disease or having gallstones.
Lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers of these birth control pills claiming that the women who have taken them have developed serious health side effects, like gallbladder issues. In 2009, Yaz had worldwide sales of $2 million.
