An estimated 80% of women have utilized the oral form of birth control at some point during their lives. Birth control can make your life easier because it is almost 100% effective when used correctly in preventing unwanted pregnancy. Frustratingly, though, oral contraceptive can actually cause severe health problems in some women, such as cerebral hemorrhages.
A cerebral hemorrhage is uncontrollable bleeding into the delicate tissue of the brain. This may result in serious brain damage or even death. At Williams Kherkher, we believe that oral contraceptives should help you manage your life, not put your health and wellbeing at risk.

Types of Cerebral Hemorrhages
Cerebral hemorrhage can be even more dangerous than strokes that block the flow of blood to the brain. They occur when a weak blood vessel ruptures and spills blood over the brain tissue. There are several types of cerebral hemorrhages depending on their location in the brain, including:
- Intracerebral – inside the brain itself
- Subarachnoid – between the brain and its membranes
- Subdural – between the layers of the dura, or the covering of the brain
- Epidural – between the dura and the brain
The problem with cerebral hemorrhages is that extensive damage may be done before a person shows symptoms of bleeding in the brain. As blood pumps into brain tissue, a victim may exhibit symptoms such as:
- Problems with vision or speech
- Loss of consciousness
No one should have to suffer complications like these because of a defective medication. Our Yasmin side effect attorneys work hard for victims of such side effects.
