Gallbladder disease is a potential – and serious – side effect of Yaz and Yasmin birth control. Gallbladder disease includes infection, stones, inflammation or obstruction of the gallbladder. Women from all over the United States are seeking the counsel of Yaz and Yasmin lawyers after developing gallbladder disease as a result of taking these birth control pills.
The function of the gallbladder, which is located under the liver, is to store and concentrate the bile produced by the liver. This bile helps your body digest fats and is released from the gallbladder into the upper small intestine. Gallbladder disease is a result of a condition that slows or obstructs the flow of bile out of the gallbladder.
Symptoms of gallbladder disease include:
- Chest pain
- Abdominal pain
If you have developed gallbladder disease as a result of taking Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella, you should seek the immediate advice of a Yaz/Yasmin lawyer. A Yaz lawyer can advise you on your legal rights and help you understand your options, including bringing a Yaz or Yasmin lawsuit.
