Adverse Reactions to Drospirenone

Drospirenone is a synthetic chemical found in oral contraceptives Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella. While these drugs have been reported to be effective for birth control, they also carry an increased risk of health complications. Sometimes the health problems are internal, and a woman taking drospirenone pills may not know that she is experiencing a negative reaction to the drug until a serious problem occurs. If you are currently taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, the following information on the associated negative side-effects could help you to anticipate a more serious health problem before it occurs.

Unintended Side Effects

Reports from patients and doctors alike show that women who take these particular oral contraceptives have an increased risk of blood clots, stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, and other serious internal injuries. These types of severe reactions can occur with little warning. However, before these serious complications occur, some women also experience less severe reactions that may indicate that their bodies are reacting adversely to the drug. If you experience any of the warning signs listed below, consider contacting your doctor immediately to discuss your condition and other contraceptive options available to you.

Warning Signs to Watch For

The following is a list of adverse reactions that some women experience while taking an oral contraceptive containing drospirenone:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Changes in menstrual cycle
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Breast tenderness
  • Chest pain
  • Irregular heartbeat

Some of these side-effects are fairly common and may only persist for a short time. Others are more severe and could be a warning sign for a much more serious health complication. Any of these symptoms or other negative reactions should be reported to your health care professional so that more severe potential problems can be addressed before they occur.
