yasmin birthcontrol

I currently am on yasmin birthcontrol(generic form of YAZ)-have been now for over 6 months. My question is that my hubby was watching tv and during a commercial there was one of those attorney adds that came on and said if u've taken yasmin, yaz, and a few others to call them. Is there a recall that Im not aware of or is it just another dumb commercial?

  • Some people are getting sick from it.

    All drugs have side effects and the attorny is saying Yaz understated theirs. Basically, if you have heart problems, smoke, etc. (like with any ohter pill) you have higher risks. I was on both Yaz and Yasmin for a while but had issues iwth spotting so changed. But didn't have any of the other side effects. If you are concerned, talk to your doctor and some reserach of the news articles.

  • they have a lot of side effects. I was just put on YAZ monday and did a lot of research on it but as far as I know, there isn't no recall or the dr prob would not have prescribed it to me...

  • Your doctor would have taken you off of it if so there is not recalls on it but people are having a lot of problems with it.

  • I'm under the impression that yasmin and yaz are different. Yasmin is the original bc and they came out with a different bc called yaz. and yaz helps more with the mood swings and acne. i was on it for a while before becoming prego. i'm not sure if i had side effects from it, but my emotions were all over the place.

  • I don't know if there is a recall, but I have never heard anything good about it, people always have crazy side affects

  • My SIL was put on YAZ about a year ago and then started having side effects with her heart. They didn't think it was related, at first. But now she's off YAZ and hasn't had any issues. And YAZ does have heart related side effects.

  • wow, it sucks to know so many people are having issues with yaz. I love my yasmin- im down to a 1-2 day period, its so light I'm not sure if u would even say its a period haha, so i was really hoping it wasn't recalled or something. the weight gain is the biggest reason i chose this one cuz its not supposed to cause weight gain
