Based on recent reports, as many as 190 women in the United States may have died due to the side effects caused by Yasmin and Yaz oral contraceptive pills, leading some to accuse Bayer, the maker of Yaz, of once again putting profits over the safety and well being of women.
In 2006, a drug known as "Yaz" hit the U.S. Market. An oral contraceptive, Yaz appealed to millions of women. Yaz was advertised as a new birth control pill. Unlike other types of birth control pills that often contained a type of fake estrogen, Yaz contained drospirenone, an entirely new ingredient to Yaz and other contraceptives. Furthermore, Yaz was extremely appealing to women all over the country as it had the ability to eliminate the phenomenon of women gaining premenstrual water weight - a trait that has now been proven to cause a nasty side effect. Yaz has been shown to cause serious medical conditions, including but not limited to gallbladder disease.
Trying to decide which birth control to take can be a difficult decision for many women. In order to find the right type of birth control, women need to figure out what works best for their lifestyle and must decide what will fit with their personal medical history. Millions of women have turned to Yaz because they were led to believe that Yaz would give them fewer side effects than traditional oral birth control pills. The opposite proved to be true, as patients who have taken Yaz have reported severe medical complications.
At one point in time, Yaz was thought to be an effective form of birth control. Unfortunately, many women who have taken Yaz have experienced side effects that are detrimental to their health. Pulmonary embolisms are one of these dangerous side effects. Pulmonary embolisms are blood clots caused by deep vein thrombosis. The blood clots block the coronary arteries and can result in heart attacks and other health ailments. Women who took Yaz are three times more likely to develop blood clots than women who used other types of oral contraceptives.
