Yaz was a birth control pill that was advertised to help with acne and premenstrual depression. It was aimed toward healthy, young women. It was a hit in society but eventually turned fatal. If you or someone you know has suffered or died from blood clots due to taking Yaz, you should speak with a lawyer immediately.
The makeup of Yaz is different from that of other birth control pills. This was the main marketing technique used to sell Yaz. While it is the same as other pills in that it contains ethinyl estradiol which is a common synthetic type of estrogen, it also contains a form of synthetic progesterone. This synthetic type of progesterone, drospirenone increases the risk of forming blood clots.
The label for Yaz has side effect warnings, and it also states a warning for people who have illnesses including liver disease, breast cancer, liver tumors, uncontrolled hypertension, and trouble with potassium levels. However, it states that healthy women should be able to take the pill without worry. This has not been the case because healthy women as well as girls as young as fifteen have died from blood clots due to taking Yaz.
Yaz gives women more hormone doses than other birth control pills. Most birth control packs have twenty-one active pills and seven inactive pills. In most birth control packs, the last seven pills which are meant to be taken during a woman’s period only serve as a reminder. Yaz, however, has twenty-four active pills and only four inactive pills.
DVT is a blood clot that has been linked to Yaz. Although this type of blood clot is usually associated with older patients who are inactive or suffer from heart failure,
Yaz has caused DVT in young, healthy women. These blood clots can cause strokes, pulmonary embolisms, and heart attacks. All of these can result in death.
Yaz was a very popular yet dangerous birth control pill. It has been linked to the deaths of some healthy, young women. If you or someone you know has taken Yaz and suffered from a blood clot or death, please speak to a lawyer today.
