Yasmin health risks

Yasmin and Yaz (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol) are oral contraceptive combination drugs, combining the hormones estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and progestin (drospirenone).
Ocella is the generic version of this combination of drugs.
All three pills contain drospirenone, a progestin hormone that can increase potassium levels.
Yasmin/Yaz/Ocella health risks
According to the Food and Drug Administration, 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.
Among the life-threatening injuries reported from drospirenone in birth control are:
- heart attacks,
- blood clots,
- pulmonary embolisms,
- deep vein thrombosis,
- liver or kidney failure,
The drugs work by preventing ovulation and also cause changes in the lining of the uterus; it is more difficult for a sperm to reach the uterus and for an egg that is fertilized to attach to the uterus.
If you have experienced serious side effects after taking Yaz, Yasmin or the generic product Ocella, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit.
A lawyer with experience in birth control litigation can help evaluate your claim.
Many women around the country have suffered from life-threatening side effects related to Yasmin, Yaz or Ocella but are unaware they have a right to seek monetary compensation by filing a claim against the manufacturers.
