Yasmin/Yaz Gallbladder Injuries

In addition to the other injuries caused by birth control pills Yasmin, Yaz and Ocella (including pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, pancreatitis, stroke, and heart attack), Yaz drug injury lawyers are investigating gallbladder problems.

Doctors and the medical literature report a spike in gallbladder disease among otherwise healthy adults (including young adults), and the only connection appears to be that these women are all taking one of these drospirenone-containing birth control medications. Doctors believe that Yaz can increase cholesterol levels in bile while simultaneously decreasing gallbladder movement, leading to gallstones. Many women must have their gallbladder removed (cholecystectomy), and can suffer from impaired digestion, bloating, gas, heartburn, constipation or diarrhea. Of course, many women have abdominal scars from the surgery. Finally, many people who undergo gallbladder removal must radically change their diet.

    I was diagnoised with endodometriosis when I was 14 they switched my birth control constantly to regulate my periods and to help with pain after being put on Yasmin I started getting frequent heart burn I eventually went in for exploritory surgery and a DNC then 2wks from that exact day I had a gallbladder attack I was 17 at the time. It was completely dead and had attached itself to my stomach trying to survive. That attack was the worst pain I had ever been in and they did the next day remove my gallbladder, spent a week in the hospital after that because it was so bad.

    I took Yaz from January 2008 til April 2008, which is when I had my appendix removed. Is that a coincidence or was that a result of Yaz because to this day, I was never given an explanation to the cause of my random appendicitis that almost lead to my death.
