Yaz and Yasmin are common forms of contraceptives developed to prevent pregnancy. While Yaz and Yasmin advertise great benefits besides the obvious (birth control), such as reduced side effects and better skin, there are still too many unfortunate side effects associated with taking the popular birth control drug.
Some of the less dangerous side effects seen in Yaz and Yasmin include:
Headaches / dizziness
Bodily water retention
Change in appetite and weight gain
Change in menstrual cycle
In other, unfortunate situations, some side effects reach serious, even fatal levels when users take oral contraceptives. Some of these side effects, seen in Yaz and Yasmin users, are as follows:
Allergic reaction including difficulty breathing, swelling of throat, lips, tongue or face
Chest pain, coughing up blood, shortness of breath
Blood clots in the leg, Deep Vein Thrombosis, or Pulmonary Embolism
Severe head pain, vomiting, blurred vision, and numbness in an arm or leg, possibly resulting in a stroke
Kidney Damage or Kidney Disease
