The New York Times announced today that “A new study of 1.3 million Danish women over nine years adds to the evidence that some newer birth-control pills, including the best-seller Yaz, have a higher risk of causing potentially dangerous blood clots.”  That makes approximately 5 studies in recent years suggesting a higher risk of blood clots for birth control pills using the a new form of progestin (drospirenone).

Side effects include heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, blood clots, and even death.
