Safety Announcement
[09-26-2011] The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is informing the public that it has not yet reached a conclusion, but remains concerned, about the potential increased risk of blood clots with the use of drospirenone-containing birth control pills. FDA has completed its review of the two 2011 studies that evaluated the risk of blood clots for women who use drospirenone-containing birth control pills, previously mentioned in FDA's Drug Safety Communication issued on May 31, 2011. FDA is continuing its review of a separate FDA-funded study that evaluated the risk of blood clots in users of several different hormonal birth control products (contraceptives). Preliminary results of the FDA-funded study suggest an approximately 1.5-fold increase in the risk of blood clots for women who use drospirenone-containing birth control pills compared to users of other hormonal contraceptives.
Given the conflicting nature of the findings from six published studies evaluating this risk, as well as the preliminary data from the FDA-funded study (See Data Summary), FDA has scheduled a joint meeting of the Reproductive Health Drugs Advisory Committee and the Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory Committee on December 8, 2011 to discuss the risks and benefits and specifically the risk of blood clots of drospirenone-containing birth control pills.

Patients should talk to their healthcare professional about their risk for blood clots before deciding which birth control pill to use. Known risk factors that increase the risk of a blood clot include smoking, being overweight (obesity), and family history of blood clots, in addition to other factors that contraindicate use of birth control pills.
Women currently taking a drospirenone-containing birth control pill should be informed of the potential risk for blood clots. FDA previously communicated preliminary information about these concerns to the public on May 31, 2011 .
FDA has prepared a list of questions and answers to provide an overview of this potential safety issue. FDA will continue to communicate any new information to the public as it becomes available
Health Canada is currently reviewing the safety of Bayer Pharmaceutical’s birth control pills, Yaz and Yasmin, in an effort to determine if women who use these drugs are at an increased risk of developing life-threatening blood clots over women using different brands of birth control.

Yaz Lawyers of Free Legal Shield are pleased to  announce that contraceptive Manufacturer, Bayer, has agreed to pay out at least $110 million to settle 500 lawsuits involving Yaz blood clots. News of the settlements comes at a time when the Yaz lawsuit total exceeds 11,000, with plaintiffs claiming the birth control pill resulted in dangerous blood clots.

New Warning Labels on Yaz April 2012

In an announcement released April 10, 2012, the FDA stated that new warnings about the risk of blood clots will now be required on the labels of birth control pills that contain the progestin “drospirenone.” Yaz, Yasmin, Beyaz, and Safyral will now carry warnings detailing recent studies that suggest these pills may carry a slightly higher risk of Yaz blood clots.

Many Studies show Yaz linked to Blood Clots

two new studies recently published in the British Medical Journal, which concluded that women ages 15-44 taking birth control pills containing the synthetic progestin, drospirenone, are more likely to develop blood clots deep in the veins of the leg (venous thromboembolism), than women using birth control pills containing the common progestin levonorgestrel. The studies reported that the risk of developing blood clots for women taking the drospirenone-containing pills may be two to three times greater than those who take other pills. Yaz is one of these drugs.
