Yaz prevents ovulation and causes changes in the cervical and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.
Yaz is used as contraception to prevent pregnancy.
Yaz is contraindicated if you are pregnant or if you have any of the following conditions: a history of stroke or blood clot, breast or uterine cancer, abnormal vaginal bleeding, kidney or liver disease, an adrenal gland disorder, severe high blood pressure, migraine headaches, or a history of jaundice caused by birth control pills.
Yaz is contraindicated if there are allergies to drospirenone or ethinyl estradiol, or if there is a history of:
– uncontrolled high blood pressure, migraine headaches, or a heart valve disorder;
– a history of stroke, blood clot, or circulation problems of diabetes;
– kidney or liver disease;
– adrenal gland disorder;
– any type of breast, uterine, or hormone-dependent cancer; or
– a history of jaundice caused by birth control pills.
FDA pregnancy category X. Yaz can cause birth defects. Drospirenone may raise potassium levels in the blood. Other medical conditions can also affect potassium levels, including liver disease, kidney disease, adrenal gland disorders and medications.
