Yaz Side Effects

Has you or anyone you know taken the drug Yaz, also known as Yasmin,  Yas or Generic Ocella?  If your  answer  is yes, you need to be aware of some very serious potential side effects.

Yaz underwent the required clinical testing for anti-pregnancy drugs, but those tests did not include a control group so side-effects could not be monitored. There is no way a control group can be utilized when testing birth-control drugs because of the risk of pregnancy in the group taking the placebo.

Since Yaz has been on the market, some very serious yaz side effects have come to light:

  • Heart attacks
  • Stroke
  • Deep vein thrombosis (severe blood clotting)
  • Pulmonary embolism (typically a blockage of the main artery of the lung)
  • Sudden death
  • Gallbladder Disease
  • Blood Clots

Allergic reaction and side effects considered less serious:

  • Increased appetite
  • Decreased sexual activity and desire
  • Non-cyclical menstrual bleeding and spotting
  • Sporadic increases in weight
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach pains
  • Nausea
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Vaginal yeast infections
  • Mood swings or changes in emotional behavior
  • Abnormal sleeping patterns or sudden insomnia
  • Physical weakness
  • Chest pains combined with nausea and profuse sweating
  • Pains in the arms, shoulders, and chest
  • Breast lump(s)
  • Yellowing of the skin or eyes (symptoms of jaundice)
  • Severe, prolonged stomach pains coupled with loss of appetite
  • Constant severe migraines
  • Numbness or weakness in any part of the body
  • Problems with vision or speech, loss of equilibrium
  • Vaginal irritation and regular discharge

    “YAZ is a popular family planning option for women who want a reliable means of birth control. YAZ birth control pills not only prevent pregnancy from occurring, but can help ease the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). If you are considering taking YAZ, carefully consider the benefits and risks before making a decision.”

    .
    “Warning
    YAZ contains drospirenone, a form of estrogen that can increase potassium levels. Women with liver, kidney or adrenal disease are advised not to take YAZ because elevated potassium levels could cause heart and other health-related problems. Your doctor may recommend another method of birth control if you have diabetes, heart disease, epilepsy, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, endometriosis, a history of stroke, a previous problem with blood clots, liver disease, jaundice, severe headaches, angina or cancer. If you are older than 35 and smoke, birth control pills are not recommended because they may increase your risk of having a stroke or developing heart problems.” (Ibid.)
