Gallbladder complications can lead to chronic pain and difficulty digesting because the function of a gallbladder is to store bile and help with the digestion process.

If the gallbladder becomes diseased gallstones can develop. Gallstones are hard deposits that can be the size of a grain or as large as a golf ball. There are two types of gallstones, the most common type is ones that are caused by cholesterol. The other type are stones that are made from too much bilirubin in the Bile.

This type of stones are called pigment stones. Causes of gallstones include failure for your gallbladder to empty the bile properly, rapid weight loss, and diabetes. Recently, gallbladder complications and gallstones have been linked to the use of certain birth control pills, such as Yaz and Yasmin.

The studies were published in the British Medical Journal and Bayer has announced in a press release that the results were unreliable. The study looked at blood clots that were suffered by users of Yasmin and Yaz and compared them to users of older contraceptives.

Researchers found that the rate of blood clots suffered with Yasmin and Yaz users was nearly double that of users of other contraceptives. Researchers concluded that these newer birth controls were not as safe.
