Yaz and Gallbladder Disease/Removal

Note: Lopez McHugh is no longer accepting cases involving Yaz, Yasmin, Beyaz and gallbladder injury.

Lopez McHugh and other law firms around the country believe that Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella increase the risk of gallbladder disease more than other, more established birth control pills. We represent numerous women who have had their gallbladders removed while on Yaz, and we are evaluating cases nationwide.

Drospirenone can cause increased cholesterol, increased potassium, or dehydration, all of which could contribute to gallbladder disease.

Doctors have expressed surprise to learn that healthy teenagers and young adults are being diagnosed with gallbladder disease and having their gallbladders removed after taking Yaz, Yasmin, Ocella, or other birth control pills that contain drospirenone, and recently, a group of scientists published a study showing that drospirenone-containing birth control pills have a 20 percent higher risk of gallbladder removal than other birth control pills, even when controlling for other risk factors for gallbladder disease.

Women who have suffered injury as a result of taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella should understand the legal remedies available to them. If you or someone you love developed a blood clot or gallbladder disease while taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, you may be eligible to recover damages.
