Risk factor of Yasmin, Yaz studied by FDA

Posted on July 14th, 2011 No Comments

The active ingredient in Yasmin, Yaz and Ocella birth control pills is called drospirenone and it has been under fire for some time for being associated with giving women a higher risk of developing blood clots.

A total of four studies have been done on birth controls that contain drospirenone and it has been shown that women’s risk of developing a blood clot while taking them is 2-3 times higher compared to women that take older generation birth controls.

Two of the studies showed that the Yaz and Yasmin did not have a higher risk of developing serious health issues, but both of these studies were sponsored by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of the oral contraceptives.

The FDA has now organized a study of 800,000 American women that are using oral contraceptives in order to get an accurate idea of the risks.

If you or a loved one was prescribed Yasmin, Yaz, or Ocella and developed a serious health complication such as a blood clot as a result of that use, you may be able to receive compensation for your pain. Contact the Yasmin blood clot lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187.
