Yasmin, Yaz, Ocella

Yaz is a prescription birth control pill manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals. As with other birth control pills, Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella contain the hormones estrogen and progestin in order to prevent pregnancy. The progestin used in Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella is dropsirenone, which has been linked to serious medical conditions.

Serious side effects found to be associated with dropsirenone as contained in Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella birth control pills include:

  • Heart attack,
  • Stroke
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Blood clots
  • Abnormal heart rhythm
  • Gall bladder injury
  • Death

Due to the potentially serious and life-threatening dangers associated with Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella, side effects should be immediately evaluated by a doctor.

Currently, neither the FDA nor the manufacturer has issued a Yaz recall and it remains one of the most popular birth control pills.
