The oral contraceptive, Yaz, is often prescribed for Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder because it helps to ease the symptoms. Many women suffer from PMS which can come with bloating, irritability, cramping and moodiness, but PMDD is more severe and affects less women.
Doctors do not know the cause of of PMDD, but it is thought that it is connected to a person’s hormone levels fluctuating when the body is preparing for menstruation to begin. Symptoms of PMDD include extreme irritability, severe cramping, depression, suicidal thoughts, headaches, severe mood swings and disinterest in activities.
Yaz is frequently used to prevent these symptoms of PMDD, but the oral contraceptive has been linked to serious negative health side effects. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a serious side effect of Yaz such as a stroke, contact the Yaz stroke lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187 today.
