Yaz often prescribed for PMDD

Posted on August 30th, 2011 No Comments

The oral contraceptive, Yaz, is often prescribed for Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder because it helps to ease the symptoms. Many women suffer from PMS which can come with bloating, irritability, cramping and moodiness, but PMDD is more severe and affects less women.

Doctors do not know the cause of of PMDD, but it is thought that it is connected to a person’s hormone levels fluctuating when the body is preparing for menstruation to begin. Symptoms of PMDD include extreme irritability, severe cramping, depression, suicidal thoughts, headaches, severe mood swings and disinterest in activities.

Yaz is frequently used to prevent these symptoms of PMDD, but the oral contraceptive has been linked to serious negative health side effects. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a serious side effect of Yaz such as a stroke, contact the Yaz stroke lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.

A Florida woman has filed a lawsuit against the makers of the oral contraceptive Yaz for allegedly causing her permanent injuries when the prescription medication caused her to suffer a serious blood clot.

Blood clots are a serious medical condition that can cause negative health side effects. Studies have shown that women who use certain kinds of oral contraceptives were three to six times more likely to develop blood clots than women who are not taking oral contraceptives.

A few signs of blood clots include blurred or double vision, sudden numbness in the arms, legs or face, difficulty speaking, pressure in the chest and chronic headaches.

Yasmin and Yaz have been linked to the increased risk of developing blood clots. If you or a loved one has developed a serious health side effect after you were prescribed Yasmin or Yaz, contact the Yasmin blood clot lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187.

Woman, 35, dies of blood clot, birth control claimed to be cause

Posted on August 10th, 2011 No Comments

A 35-year-old woman was killed because of a blood clot that relatives believe was caused by her oral contraceptive pill.

Just hours before the woman collapsed, she complained of stomach pains and sickness. The woman had been taking the oral contraceptive pill for seven years and remained very healthy.

Besides regular check ups, the woman rarely even needed to visit a physician. After complaining of stomach pain, the woman called a doctor with extended hours. She stopped breathing shortly after and was pronounced dead when emergency crews arrived at the scene. The woman’s boyfriend of six years stated that the coroner announced that the pill may have had a connection to her death.

Our thoughts are with the friends and family of the victim at this time.

Nearly 25 percent of women have a vein malformation that makes them more likely to develop a blood clot while taking birth control.

The issue occurs when there is a narrowing of the left iliac vein, which is one of the major ones that returns blood from your lower body to your heart.

A recent study was published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology states that those who have the condition left iliac vein stenosis and they combine this with birth control containing estrogen and progestin, they multiply their chances of developing deep vein thrombosis by 18 times.

Deep vein thrombosis occurs when a blood clot is developed in the lower veins of the leg and they can travel to the heart.
