Representing Victims of Yaz, Yasmine, and Ocella Birth Control Injuries
Since its release in 2006, Yaz has become an extremely popular drug for young women. In addition to its highly effective birth control capabilities, Yaz has also been approved by the FDA to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) and alleviate acne. Part of what makes Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella such potent forms of birth control is that they are some of the only drugs to contain drospirenone, a progestin that affects the uterine lining. Unfortunately, this same ingredient has been attributed to the numerous health problems many women have suffered when taking one of these pills.

Yaz Health Complications
Drospiernone can have the unfortunate side effect of disturbing an individual’s heart rhythm and form blood clots. According to the FDA, more than 60 women taking these drugs have died from their health complications, and due to underreporting this number is much lower than the actual statistic.
Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella have been known to cause:
- Blood clots
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Gall bladder disease
- Heart attacks
- Sudden cardiac death
As of now, the only step the FDA has taken to mitigate these problems is enforce a rule that the drugs must come with new warning labels indicating the dangers of synthetic drospiernone. Nonetheless, because Yaz is so heavily advertised, and the warnings about its side effects are often inadequate, the manufacturers and distributers are often still held liable for injury claims.
