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.
