Yaz®, Yasmin®, Beyaz®, Gianvi®, and Ocella® Linked to Blood Clots, Pulmonary Embolism, Strokes, and Heart Attacks

You may be entitled to compensation! 

Yaz® and Yasmin®, the birth control pills, are now involved in multiple federal lawsuits.  

Among the serious and debilitating injuries reported from drospirenone in birth control are pulmonary embolisms, heart attacks, blood clots, and strokes. Some people have even died.

The FDA is alleged to have received more reports of serious side effects for Yaz® and Yasmin® than other birth control pills that have been on the market much longer.

The Side-Effects of Yaz® and Yasmin®

Some of the side effects potentially linked to Yaz®, Yasmin®, Ocella®, Gianvi®, and Beyaz®, include but are not limited to:

• Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
• Heart Attack

• Liver Failure
• Pancreatitis
• Gall bladder Disease /Gall Stone Removal

Each tablet of Yaz®/Yasmine® contains 3 mg drospirenone, a progestin hormone.  According to the FDA, drospirenone can lead to hyperkalemia, a condition caused by excessive amounts of potassium in the blood of high risk patients, resulting in potentially serious heart and health problems.

About Yaz® and Yasmin® - What Makes them Different?

Yaz® and Yasmin® are oral contraceptive combination drugs, containing a combination of the hormones estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and progestin (drospirenone).

The difference between these two drugs is the amount of estrogen that they contain. Yasmin® contains 30 mcg of estrogen per dose; Yaz®, 20 mcg. Yaz® and Yasmin® prevent ovulation by changing the lining of the uterus; the drugs make it harder for a sperm to reach the uterus and harder for an egg that is fertilized to attach to the uterus.

There are three FDA-approved uses for Yaz® and Yasmin®: Pregnancy prevention, alleviation of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and treatment of moderate acne.   

Yaz® had been approved for use in the US market in 2006; Yasmin® was approved in 2001. The two drugs dominate the contraceptive market in the US, with an estimated 25% market share. In 2008, Yaz® was the top-selling birth control pill in the United States.
