YAZ BIRTH CONTROL AND GAINING WEIGHT

Diuretic Effect Can Lead to Serious Medical Conditions

Most oral contraceptives, including Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella birth control, can have side effects. These may include:
  • bloating
  • breast tenderness
  • nausea
  • headache
  • changes of menstruation and/or spotting between cycles
  • mood swings
  • darkening of facial skin
  • increased hair growth
  • vaginal itching or discharge
  • weight gain

Weight gain is a serious concern for many women. Women may put on pounds while taking contraceptives due to elevated appetite and increased water retention. This bloating is often due to changes in hormone levels while using birth control.  However, the progestin in Yaz, drospirenone, has diuretic effects which may decrease the weight gain associated with water retention.  Unfortunately, this diuretic effect of Yaz may be the cause of other serious medical conditions. 

In some cases, women using Yaz have reported serious side effects including:

  • blood clots
  • deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • depression and confusion
  • gallbladder disease
  • heart attack
  • kidney problems
  • liver tumors
  • stroke
  • serious allergic reaction

In increasing numbers, women who have suffered these more serious side effects from Yaz birth control are coming forward to report their injuries. Yaz birth control lawsuits are being filed across the United States.
