Have you experienced dangerous side effects as a result of the Yaz or Yasmin birth control products? Yaz and Yasmin are said to be 99% effective in regards to preventing pregnancy, which has drawn many women in- the makers of these products also claim that they can treat moderate acne or premenstrual dysphoric disorder. The Yaz birth control bill is a once-a-day contraceptive that was approved by the FDA back in March of 2006. The unique factor with these particular pills is that they contain drospirenone which makes them much more dangerous for your health. Drospirenone is a drug that can increase your blood potassium levels and can result in serious heart problems.
Over the past few years many women have suffered negative side effects and have been injured as a result of using the Yaz and Yasmin contraceptives. The most common injuries that have been reported involve: serious blood clots, stroke, heart attacks, Deep Vein Thrombosis, Pulmonary Embolism, Gallbladder disease and sudden death.
