Oral contraceptives triggering investigation

As reported in The New York Times, some researchers are claiming that the oral contraceptives “Yaz” and “Yasmin” are putting women’s health at risk. The risks associated with these two contraceptive pills are higher than average risk for blood clot or stroke.

The death of one young woman who took these pills is now under investigation.

“Yaz” and “Yasmin” were marketed as oral contraceptives that not only helped prevent pregnancy but also reduced acne and premenstrual depression, this made the drugs appealing to many young women.
