Yaz birth control increases the risk of pulmonary embolism, a condition in which an artery in the lung (part of the body’s pulmonary system) is blocked by a blood clot so the blood cannot get through to the lung.
All combined-hormone contraceptives (including Yaz birth control pills) increase a woman’s likelihood of suffering a pulmonary embolism, especially if she uses the contraceptive and:
* is over 35
* has a family or personal history of pulmonary embolism
The makers of Yaz birth control, Bayer Corp., are aware of the pulmonary embolism risk associated with Yaz side effects. The estrogen in combined-hormone contraceptives such as Yaz increases the risk of blood clot formation. Blood clots cause pulmonary embolisms; a pulmonary embolism occurs when a blood clot in the body breaks free from the site where it formed usually in the leg veins and travels to a lung.
