Health Canada is currently reviewing two studies done on the safety of the birth control pills, Yasmin and Yaz. Both birth control pills contain the hormone drospirenone and have been linked to causing serious health issues.
Although all birth control pills raise your percentage of blood clots, Health Canada is focusing on Yaz and Yasmin because they both contain that hormone. The two studies that are being reviewed were both published in the British Medical Journal.
The study showed that women (between the age 15 and 44) were more two to three times more likely to develop deep vein thrombosis if they took drospirenone-containing birth controls then women who did not. Health Canada is now studying the risks and once the review is complete they will decide what action to take.
If you or a loved one was prescribed Yasmin or Yaz birth control and you developed a serious health issue as a result, contact the Yasmin blood clot lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-761-3187 today.
