Birth control pills contain hormones, typically either estrogen or progestin, or a combination of both. The hormones prevent the release of eggs from the ovaries, thus preventing the possibility of a woman becoming pregnant. Some birth control pills, such as Yaz, have a type of progestin that has been know to cause blood clots, which can lead to heart failure. The progestin in the drug has also been found to raises your blood potassium levels to dangerous levels, leading to many serious health issues. In addition, Yaz has other dangerous hormones, which are harmful to your health and greatly increase your risk for serious health problems.
