The Potential Yaz Side Effects

There are many kinds of contraception available today, all of which vary in effectiveness and have their advantages and disadvantages. Everyone has their own preference of contraception, which can depend on a variety of factors such as lifestyle and amount of sexual activity. However one of the most popular forms of protection is oral contraceptive, or “the pill”. These are considered to be one of the most effective choices as well as very convenient. There are also many things to consider when it comes to choosing the pill, as there are many different ones available. The active ingredient that the pill contains often differs, as does the price and the potential side effects that may occur. One of the more recent oral contraceptive developments is the Yaz birth control pill. It contains small doses of the oestrogen hormone and drospirenone, which as well as making an effective contraceptive, can also be used to treat severe acne and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. However, before any such drug is prescribed, it is the duty of the doctor or health care provider to inform you of any yaz side effects. The yaz side effects that may occur after taking this pill vary from person to person and can be mild, moderate or severe. Any side effect that is treated in a timely manner will not cause any serious or long term problems, however when left untreated, mild symptoms may develop into severe health problems and in very extreme cases can even lead to death. If you notice any unusual changes to your body or the occurrence of any medical symptoms after taking the Yaz contraceptive pill, then inform a health care provider straight away.

It is thought that there are approximately 40 yaz side effects, which can be split up into two categories, emotional effects and physical effects. Some examples of the mild physical yaz side effects include loss of appetite, fluctuation in weight, breast tenderness, dental problems, sweating, abdominal pain, vomiting and nausea. Some of the more serious yaz side effects that should be treated promptly to prevent further health problems include vision problems, dizziness, high blood pressure, becoming disorientated, liver problems, shortness of breath, breast lumps, migraines and an increased blood potassium level. Some of the serious complications that can potentially develop are heart attacks, strokes and blood clots. Contact a doctor as soon as experiencing any of these associated yaz side effects.

Despite those potential physical yaz side effects, one of the more common reactions to the pill is the onset of emotional disorders. This is due to the changes in the levels of hormones caused by taking the medication. Some of the potential emotional yaz side effects are frustration, irritability, anxiety, mood swings and depression.

There are many potential yaz side effects but they will not affect everyone and most people will only experience very mild symptoms as their bodies are first adapting to the hormone change. Before anyone begins taking this pill, whether as a form of contraception or for other medically related reasons, they should seek advice and guidance from their doctors.
