YAZ – Causes blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes

Yaz, a popular birth control medication in the United States, is an oral contraceptive that is used to prevent unwanted pregnancy and treat the emotional and physical ymptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). Yaz, as well as the birth control medications Yasmin, Zarah, Loryna, Syeda, Beyaz, Safyral, and Ocella, have been linked to health issues ranging from strokes to heart attacks: Yaz contains high levels of the progestin drospirenone, which can increase blood potassium levels and lead to clotting.


Our firm is representing women who have experienced negative side effects from taking Yaz, Yasmin, Zarah, Loryna, Syeda, Beyaz, Safyral, or Ocella. If you take Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella and have experienced a pulmonary embolism, blood clots, stroke or heart attack, you may be eligible for monetary benefits resulting from your injuries.
