Deep-Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
Deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot develops in an individual’s deeper veins. Generally, this means that the clot will form in a lower extremity, such as the legs. Blood clots are a serious health concern, as they can sometimes dislodge themselves and move to a different location. If they become lodged near a vital organ, such as the heart or lungs, they may be life-threatening.
Blood clots and deep-vein thrombosis have been linked to certain birth control pills, such as YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella. If you have experienced a blood clot while taking these Drosperinone-containing contraceptives, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses.

Symptoms of DVT
Individuals with deep-vein thrombosis often experience one or more of the following symptoms in their legs:
- Localized pain
- Surface veins may appear to be more pronounced than usual
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, consult your doctor immediately. Women who have taken YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella are at an increased risk for developing blood clots.
If you or someone you love has suffered from deep-vein thrombosis while taking a Drosperinone-containing contraceptive, the drug manufacture may be liable for those injuries.
