The labels on Bayer’s Yaz and Yasmin birth control pills are receiving stronger warnings of their dangers.
The new labels include warnings that state the drug increases a woman’s chances of experiencing blood clots by three times. These blood clots are dangerous because they can have have fatal consequences, including pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis. FDA advisers voted in favor of the new labels 21-5.
Yasmin contains a man-made version of progesterone called drospirenone, which greatly increases the risk of blood clots.
