Yaz pulmonary embolism among side effects
The oral contraceptive Yaz and the related drug Yasmin have been associated with a number of significant adverse side effects. Researchers believe that the drugs’ active ingredient, drospirenone, is to blame.
Drospirenone is a synthetic hormone that affects the body’s chemistry. One of its unintended consequences is to increase potassium levels, sometimes high enough to cause a dangerous condition known as “hyperkalemia.” Increased potassium levels are associated with the development of Yaz blood clots and gallbladder disease.
Yaz blood clots can have life-threatening consequences throughout an individual’s body. They can cause stroke, heart attack, and Yaz pulmonary embolism. Thousands of women who have been injured by Yaz pulmonary embolism and other significant side effects have hired a Yaz lawyer and filed claims against Bayer.

YAZ / Yasmin January 2012 Update: Minutes And Transcripts For FDA Advisory Committees 2011 Meeting Now Available Online (And More)
11 Of The 26 FDA Panel Members Voted There Were No Sufficient Unique Benefits For YAZ / Yasmin That Cannot Be Found In Other Hormonal Contraceptives
(Posted by tom Lamb at Drug Watch
On December 8, 2011 the Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee and the Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory Committee held a joint meeting to discuss YAZ and Yasmin as well as several other relatively new birth control pills.
summary of FDA meeting
Issues: The committees discussed the benefits and risks of drospirenone-containing oral contraceptives in light of the emerging safety concern that the risk of venous thromboembolism (blood clots that can break loose and move within the circulatory system) associated with use of these products may be higher compared to oral contraceptives that contain the progestin, levonorgestrel. Drospirenone-containing oral contraceptives for the primary indication of pregnancy prevention include: YASMIN, YAZ (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol tablets), BEYAZ, SAFYRAL (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol/levomefolate calcium tablets and levomefolate calcium tablets), Bayer HealthCare, and the generic equivalents for these products.

Yaz & Pulmonary Embolism, Deep Vein thrombosis, Blood Clots, Stroke
Pulmonary embolism is one of the serious side effects reported by women who have taken the birth control pills Yaz and Yasmin. A pulmonary embolism or "PE" occurs when there is a blockage of the main arteries of the lungs. In most cases, a PE is caused by blood clots that travel to the lungs from another part of the body – most commonly, the legs – and creates a blockage in the pulmonary artery. Recent medical studies have found that the hormone used in Yaz and Yasmin, known as drospirenone or drsp, is associated with a significantly higher risk of venous thrombosis, a medical term for blood clots in the veins.
Effects of Yaz Pulmonary Embolism and deep vein Thrombosis
When a pulmonary embolism occurs, the lung tissue served by each blocked artery is robbed of fuel and can die, which makes it difficult for the lungs to provide oxygen to the rest of the body. A pulmonary embolism can be life-threatening if not treated promptly.
Additional complications can also occur. In some cases a pulmonary embolism can lead to pulmonary hypertension, a condition in which the blood pressure in the lungs is too high. Obstructions, such as blood clots, in the arteries inside the lungs make the heart work harder to push blood through those vessels. When this occurs, it increases the blood pressure within those vessels and can wear out a section of the heart.
Additionally, if a blood clot travels to the brain, a stroke can occur. Blood clots from Yaz can be fatal. Contact a Yaz Birth Control Pills Helpline lawyer today.
