Yaz has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as an effective birth-control pill, as well as a treatment for moderate acne and even PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder). Being hailed as the “miracle drug” Yaz was the top choice for birth-control pills on the 2008 as well as the succeeding year, since it was also marketed for women suffering from moods swings, acne and severe PMS. However, latest research and studies has shown that taking Yaz have increased women’s risks of developing blood clots and other health complications.

Blood clots can cause serious health problems if they are left untreated, and they can strike without your knowledge. Knowing what to look for when protecting yourself from blood clots and blood clot complications is vital in order to prevent further health risks, especially if you are taking Yaz pills. Here are some symptoms of blood clots that can alert you:

  1. Severe headaches that seem abrupt or unexpected
  2. Lower leg or back pain
  3. Coughing blood, or having piercing or crushing chest pain
  4. Significant swelling or pain in either arms or legs
  5. Vision issues such as blurred vision or complete loss of vision

There are three ways that blood clots can fatally affect a person’s health: through the arteries to affect the brain, go straight to the heart to cause heart attacks, or go to the lungs to stop your breathing. Because of the significant danger that Yaz and blood clots can cause their patients, a lot of women have look into finding a reliable Yaz lawyer to help file a case against the manufacturer of the drug (Bayer) and help them get the necessary compensation.

Although a bestselling birth-control drug, Yaz has also been on the news not only for the risks of blood clots, they have also been suspected of other complications such as gall bladder injuries and liver problems. Women who have already been affected with by these severe side effects have already filed defective pharmaceutical lawsuits hoping that other women will see the dangers of the drug and prevent further victims.
