A new study that was released Monday confirms earlier findings that women who take the new birth control pills that contain drospirenone may have an increased risk of developing a blood clot.
The most recent study observed 300,000 Isreali women who used oral contraceptives containing drospirenone. It was found that women who used these birth control pills were more likely to develop blood clots than women who used other forms.
The type of blood is called a a venuos thromboembolism and six out of 10,000 women developed this when taking the birth control pill. This type of blood clots usually begins in the leg, but can travel to the lung. Once this happens it is called a pulmonary embolism. The study has encouraged researchers to tell women to discuss their options with a physician.
If you or a loved one has developed a blood clot or pulmonary embolism as a result of taking Yasmin or Yaz birth control, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the Yasmin lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher by calling 800-761-3187.
