False Accusations towards the birth control pill Yaz and Yasmin is leading towards a “pill scare”

Filed under: Yasmin,Yaz — Tags: , , , , — Kcondon @ 4:45 pm

Birth control has been a controversial issue in healthcare. “The pill” as it is commonly referred to as has been evolving over time causing extensive studies to be done. There has been birth control scares in the past causing fear and confusion which still continues to live on in the birth control world. False advertising and not fully disclosing the side effects of birth control pills has produced class action law suits in the past.

The most recent class action law suit dealing with birth control has been against Yaz and Yasmin which are considered to be”fourth-generation” oral contraceptives. Two studies done on Yaz and Yasmin suggested that it posed a higher risk of venous thromboembolism compared to other birth control pills in the market. Venous thromboembolism is rare condition on its own but is a life threatening condition defined as a blockage of an artery in the lungs by fat, air, blood clot, or tumor cells. Birth control pills increase the odds of getting a venous thromboembolism in women. The overall risk is one in every 2000 women who don’t take the pill, and nine to 10 per 10,000 for users. The Yaz birth control pill and Yasmin birth control pill has proven to be within the safe regulations.

However, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada has reported that the studies done are in fact false which means the pills carry the same risks as other birth control drugs on the market. The recent contradictory evidence and the subsequent media coverage has generated fear and confusion among its users. This has spawned a class action law suit which will further examine the drug. What doctors are worried about is the spread of confusion to all general oral contraceptives and drospirenone-containing oral contraceptives in particular. As principal author Dr. Robert Reid, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Queen’s University in Kingston says, “We were concerned that it was going to generate another pill scare like the ones we’ve seen in the past.”

A European surveillance study sponsored by Bayer Inc. supports what doctors have been saying along. The study showed, “Nearly 60,000 new users of various birth control pills found no difference in blood clot rates between Yasmin and Yaz and other birth control pills on the market”. Dr. Reid believes that the pill’s estrogen dose is the primary cause for blood clots. The first birth control pills contained 150 micrograms of estrogen while now most pills contain 35 micrograms or less. Reid mentions, “The trade-off is that, as you lower the dose of estrogen, you start to get more spotting. Women get fed up with it and they become non-compliant — they stop using the pill and then they run a risk of getting pregnant, which has a much higher risk of blood clot than any pill”. Gynecologists are now warning that the scare can result in unwanted pregnancies and cause a domino effect amongst all birth control pills.

The Risks of Combination Birth Control Pills

There’s a lot of negativity associated with combination pills like Yaz and Yasmin where there really shouldn’t be. There are lawsuits all over TV and the internet that suggest combination birth control pills causes pancreatic cancer or organ failure. In reality, these lawsuits should not exist.

It is a patient’s job to ask questions and assess risks with their doctors before taking any medications. In addition, a new article from The Medical Letter – Volume 52, Issue 1334, 2010, reveals that although combination oral contraceptives increase the risk of developing venous thromboembolism (VTE), the risk is low. In fact, the risk of developing VTE while taking oral contraceptives is no different than the risk you have when you are pregnant. Pregnant women have a higher risk of developing VTE than women taking combination pills.

It is even debatable that the risk of developing VTE is worth the benefits that the pill provides. In addition to preventing pregnancy combination birth control pills can lower your risk of developing endometrial cancer, and reduce dysfunctional uterine bleeding, reduce acne, control menstrual periods, and reduce the symptoms of PMS. It is estimated that over 40,000 women in the United States will develop endometrial cancer this year, compared to the strongly age dependent VTE that will occur in 8-10 women in 10,000. All methods of birth control have their own set of risks and benefits. If you are concerned about your risks while taking birth control, don’t be hesitant to ask your doctor. You can’t rely on what you see on TV or hear from others when it comes to choosing the right form of contraceptive for you.

Which Birth Control Pill Reduces PMS?

girl with headacheThose who suffer with severe PMS, (premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)) or just plain old mild PMS know how much of a pain in the butt it can be. Some of you may find yourself in severe pain and exhaustion locked in your room for days; while others will be more courageous and step into civilization… turning the friendly greeting from your neighbor into a scene from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

What is PMDD?

PMDD is a severe form of PMS. Only 5% of women suffer from PMDD, and although it is not very common, some of us have “in-between” cases of PMS and PMDD that continue to affect the way we live.

Symptoms of PMDD include:

  • Feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or worthlessness
  • Anxiety or tension
  • Unstable mood and frequent crying
  • Persistent irritability causing conflict in relationships
  • Loss of interest in usual activities or relationships
  • Lack of concentration
  • Lack of energy
  • Changes in appetite, possibly including cravings or binge eating
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Feeling out of control
  • Physical symptoms including breast tenderness, breast swelling, headache, joint/muscle aches, bloating, and weight gain.

However severe your PMS symptoms are, there is a safe and convenient way to treat it.



So what exactly is this miracle medicine that is capable of taming the premenstrual beast in you? It’s Yaz. Yaz oral contraceptives are the only birth control pills that will treat cases of PMDD. This has been proven by the FDA, when a study showed that women taking Yaz reduced their PMS symptoms by at least 50%. Wow. That would also mean, if you took Yaz, you would have less arguments with mothers, sisters, significant others – and anyone else that gets in your way!

Yaz birth control pills contain levels of the female hormones estrogen and progestin. Together, these hormones exist in harmony and balance the natural processes of the female body. Dr. Andrea Rapkin, professor of obstetrics and gynecology at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine, states: “Like other birth control pills, Yaz contains the female hormones estrogen and progestin. Unlike other versions of the pill, Yaz uses a form of progestin that has unique properties. This, plus its 24-day dosing regimen, may help account for its positive effect on PMDD” These hormones, when working together stimulate the bloodstream, the heart, and the brain. This means, that stressed-out organs can finally relax when a balanced dose of the hormones are present.

For those who are already using a prescribed contraceptive, yet continue to suffer from PMDD or PMS, consider trying Yaz and consult your doctor.

“For my PMDD patients who need a treatment to reduce their symptoms — as well as a safe and effective contraception to prevent pregnancy — YAZ is an important option that can meet both of their health care needs in a single pill” – Dr. Andrea Rapkin

Yaz Birth Control and Lo from The Hills

Women of all ages use birth control. They know what it is, but many do not know about the risks and its side effects. Your physician should inform you of all you need to know about birth control. If you are currently on the pill and are experiencing the side effects for over 3 months, inform your doctor. Your doctor should prescribe you to a different birth control. Learning about birth control can help you find out which brand is right for you.

Lauren Bosworth also known as “Lo” from The Hills and Laguna Beach is the spokesmodel for Yaz birth control. Yaz is the new birth control that has fewer side effects than its competitors. These side effects include acne and fluid retention. Like many girls, Lauren has tried several different oral contraceptives. Lauren chose Yaz because of the fewer monthly periods. She also wanted to learn what her options are for birth control and to take control of its effects in her body. Different from other oral contraceptives that are usually a 21/7 cycle, Yaz is a 24/4 cycle (a low-dose combination of estrogen and progestrin).

It is very important that your doctor or nurse explains everything you need to know about the birth control they are prescribing to you before you starting taking it. The common side effects for birth control pills can be:

  • Weight gain
  • Nausea and vomiting (felt for the first few cycles)
  • Dizziness
  • Increase or decrease in acne
  • Headaches
  • High blood pressure
  • Loss of libido
  • Depression
  • Vaginal infections

The less common but serious health risks are:

  • Blood clots in legs, lungs, heart or brain
  • Stroke
  • Heart attacks
  • Possibly cervical cancer

If any of the above side effects persists or worsens, make sure you contact your doctor immediately.
