Yasmin is a fourth generation combination oral contraceptive containing a newer synthetic hormone called drospirenone. Yasmin, also marketed as Yaz and sold as the generic Ocella, was aggressively marketed to women in the United States for its use in regulating periods, treating premenstrual syndrome, acne reduction, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder.
Yaz and Yasmin side effects can result from changes in the blood clotting system. Yasmin problems including blood clots, heart attacks, and strokes have been associated with the synthetic hormone in Yasmin called drospirenone. Yaz and Yasmin blood clot side effects include Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism. The two main types of Yasmin strokes are ischemic stroke (caused by a blockage) and hemorrhagic stroke (caused by bleeding). Other severe Yasmin side effects include gallbladder disease, pancreatitis, and Kidney Damage.
