Study shows Yaz may cause irritable bowel syndrome

Posted on July 11th, 2012 No Comments

A new study out of the University of British Columbia suggests that women who take Yaz are more likely to be diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) than women who take other forms of birth control.

Researchers studied over a million women aged 18 to 46 for 90 days. Results showed that 0.77 percent of women taking Yaz developed IBS and only 0.46 percent of women on other contraceptives did.

While each group had less than one percent of women diagnosed with IBS, the Yaz group was 75 percent more likely to develop the condition. Symptoms of IBS include bloating, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and discomfort.

If you are considering taking oral contraceptives, it is important to know the side effects of Yaz. Contact the Yaz and Yasmin birth control lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187.

She states that she remembers throwing up so often that she began to throw up only bile. For months, doctors could not determine what was wrong with this healthy young girl.

Some think Beyaz may just be the new Yaz

Posted on October 25th, 2010 No Comments

Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals has introduced a new birth control called Beyaz which many are calling a new version of Yaz.

Yaz birth control has evidence against it that it has an increased risk of blood clots by 64 percent compared to birth control pills that don not contain drospirenone.

The new birth control pill, Beyaz, has just received an okay by the Federal Drug Administration and will contain Folate, also called B9. It is important during pregnancy because it wards off birth defects. The purpose of the addition the birth control is to give mothers and their fetus a head start if there is an unexpected pregnancy because no contraception is 100 percent effective.

Some worry that the launch of the new birth control pill is to “reinvent the pill and take focus off of past concerns” after the lawsuits were filed against Bayer.
