Despite being effective at preventing pregnancy both Yaz and Yasmin have been reported to cause severe, potentially fatal side effects in rare cases. Women who have developed serious health problems after taking Yaz or Yasmin should pursue all necessary medical treatments for the best chances of recovery. Once their health is stable, it will then be crucial that they consult with an experienced Yaz attorney to find out if they have a viable legal claim against Bayer HealthCare to seek compensation for their injuries and losses.

What Is Yaz / Yasmin?

Produced by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, Yaz is a birth control pill that claims to be 99.9% effective when taken within four hours of the same time each day. Unlike many other contraceptive pills, Yaz may also be prescribed in the treatment of other concerns.

Bayer has United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval to sell the COC drugs for:
• Contraception
• Treatment of premenstrual dysphonic disorder (PDD) for woman who choose to use birth control pills
• Treatment of moderate acne in females aged 14 and over who choose to use an oral contraceptive

Yasmin, which is also produced by Bayer HealthCare, is a form of birth control that contains the same amount of drospirenone as Yaz, but less ethinyl estradiol, a bioactive form of estrogen that is in most birth control pills.

Other manufacturers of the drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol COC are Teva Labs, and Barr Laboratories. Teva’s generic product Ocella uses the same formula as Yasmin. Barr Laboratories manufactures and sells Gianvi, it is the generic equivalent of Yaz.

Two recent studies, published in the British Medical Journal showed that patients taking medicines containing one of the hormones used in Yasmin, (drospirenone) have a two- to three-fold greater risk of venus thromboembolism than women using other similar hormones.

Negative, unintended side effects from Yaz and Yasmin include:

  • Blood clots
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT), in which blood clots block healthy circulation in the body’s deep veins
  • Gallbladder problems
  • Heart attack
  • Pulmonary embolism (PE), in which blood clots lodge in the lungs and dangerously interrupt respiration
  • Stroke

Stop taking Yasmin, and tell your doctor if you experience any of the following serious side effects:

  • Unexpected numbness or weakness, confusion, rear eye pain, vision difficulties, speech impairment, or issues with balance
  • Change in the pattern or severity of migraine headaches
  • Chest pain or heavy feeling, pain spreading to the arm or shoulder, nausea, sweating, general ill feeling
  • Stomach pain, loss of appetite, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)
  • A breast lump; or symptoms of depression (sleep problems, weakness, mood changes)
