Risk Factors for Cerebral Hemorrhage

A stroke is a broad name for any interruption of the blood supply to your brain. It can occur if a cranial blood vessel is blocked or if a blood vessel bursts, spilling blood throughout the cranial vault rather than directing it towards the brain tissue. A cerebral hemorrhage is the latter type of stroke, and it can cause permanent damage to your brain.

Although there are many widely known causes of stroke, doctors and researchers have found new evidence linking certain types of birth control to cerebral hemorrhages. Women who have taken YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella have shown an increased risk of debilitating strokes. If you have suffered from a stroke after taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you should contact a tenacious YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187.

How Cerebral Hemorrhage Affects Your Brain

With a cerebral hemorrhage, the blood vessel carrying oxygen-rich blood to the brain bursts. Not only does this cut off the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the delicate brain cells, but the spilling blood also builds up in the skull, placing pressure on the brain tissue. If untreated, this sharp increase in pressure can cause permanent cellular death.

Increased Chances of Stroke

Due to years of research and study, doctors have pinpointed several risk factors for stroke. You may be more likely to suffer from this dangerous condition if you can claim any of the following risk factors:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heavy drinking
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Family history of stroke or heart problems
  • Overweight or obese
  • Use of birth control pills

While hormone therapies like birth control can slightly increase your chances of having a stroke, there are a few types of pills that come with an even higher risk of stroke, including YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella.

Your birth control pills should help you, not harm you. Frustratingly, though, not all oral contraceptives are safe. If you are a victim of YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you should fight back against this terrible act of pharmaceutical negligence. To discuss your case, contact an experienced YAZ lawyer from Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 today.
