Higher Blood Clot Risk Found with Yaz, Yasmin

A study in the British Medical Journal has found that some birth control pills, including Yaz and Yasmin, carry a higher risk of blood clots compared with some others.

As we’ve reported previously, lawsuits have been filed around the U.S. by women who say they suffered serious side effects from contraceptive pills made with drospirenone, including Yaz and Yasmin. The women involved in these Yaz lawsuits claim they experienced serious blood clots, including deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, as well as strokes.  These pills have also allegedly been associated with heart attacks and deaths in young women.

According to The Globe and Mail, the study was led by Frits Rosendaal of the department of clinical epidemiology at Leiden University Medical Centre in the Netherlands. The researchers  found that oral contraceptives with the lowest amount of estrogen carried the lowest risk of blood clots.  However, the type of progestin a pill contained also made a difference.   For instance, pills made with drospirenone, such as Yasmin and Yaz, showed a 6.3-fold increase in risk of blood clots.  The highest risk was seen among users of oral contraceptives that used desogestrol, which had 7.3 times the risk of blood clots. Contraceptive pills containing levonorgestrel, however,  increased the risk of clots by only 3.6-fold, The Globe and Mail said. All of the pills studied were effective in preventing pregnancy.

The Dutch study involved over 1,500 women who suffered blood clots in their legs or their lungs while taking oral contraceptives.  They were compared with more than 1,700 women of similar backgrounds who did not suffer blood clots.
