Recently, federal health officials released a report in late October that showed the link between the risk of blood clots and the use of newer generation birth control such as Yasmin and Yaz.
According to news sources, the concern with these birth control pills have grown since this report was released. In the study, nearly 800,000 women who have taken different types of birth control from 2001 to 2007, were studied.
The results of this study showed that women who have taken Yasmin birth control had a 75 percent higher chance of developing a blood clot then women taking other birth control pills. Yasmin and Yaz both contain drospirenone, which is known to raise potassium levels in the blood.
