Yaz/Yasmine were marketed as a new type of birth control pill that, aside from functioning as an oral contraception, would also treat moderate acne and severe premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). These pills are a unique form of birth control in that they contain drospirenone (DRSP).
Some of the major side effects reported are:
- Gallbladder disease
