Blood clots are a serious medical condition that can cause negative health side effects. Studies have shown that women who use certain kinds of oral contraceptives were three to six times more likely to develop blood clots than women who are not taking oral contraceptives.
Blood clots can also lead to more serious health problems such as heart attacks, strokes and deep vein thrombosis. When taking an oral contraceptive pill, smoking can also significantly increase your risk of developing a blood clot and women who are on this medication are advised to not smoke.
A few signs of blood clots include blurred or double vision, sudden numbness in the arms, legs or face, difficulty speaking, pressure in the chest and chronic headaches.
Yasmin and Yaz have been linked to the increased risk of developing blood clots. If you or a loved one has developed a serious health side effect after you were prescribed Yasmin or Yaz, contact the Yasmin blood clot lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-761-3187.
