A woman can fall victim to a stroke when the level of estrogen in the body increases. Prescription contraceptives are designed to affect hormone levels in women. This is why women are about twice as apt to have a stroke after a certain age as men are. According to claims, Yaz carries the same threat of stroke as other similar contraceptive medications. Women using Yaz have reported that they have experienced this serious side effect.

Yaz is a drug used for birth control that is under heavy scrutiny because of the many apparent side effects that it has. One side effect that is commonly reported is gallbladder disease that results when gallstones are formed in the gallbladder or the gallbladder becomes inflamed. The gallbladder helps with digestion and storage of bile. It is a non-vital organ located in the liver. There is a lot of pain associated with gallbladder disease as well problems with digestion. However, the disease is not normally fatal.

There are many side effects associated with the prescription birth control medication, Yaz. Some of these side effects are mild and some are more serious. The most severe of these side effects is a heart attack. Anyone taking Yaz or any other prescription medication should do what it takes to keep up a lifestyle that is healthy, not just for the sake of health in general, but because all drugs come with the possibility of complications.

Yaz is primarily used as a method of birth control for women, but it is also prescribed to girls 14 and older as a treatment for acne.
