Yaz and Yasmin both contain a combination of the hormones ethinyl estradiol and drospirenone. The progestin drospirenone can increase blood potassium levels, causing a hyperkalemia, which is known to cause heart and other health problems.

- Heart Attack
- Cardiac Arrhythmias

- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
- Gallbladder Disease
A growing number of otherwise healthy young women throughout the United States have filed a Yaz lawsuit or Yasmin lawsuit against Bayer Healthcare and their predecessor, Berlex Laboratories, containing allegations that:
- The Yasmin and Yaz warnings fail to adequately inform users and the medical community of the potential risks and dangers associated with the birth control pill.

- The risk of serious side effects from Yaz and Yasmin are higher than with other contraceptives that are older and safer.
- Individuals taking Yaz or Yasmin require more monitoring.
- A recall of Yaz and Yasmin should have been issued after it became apparent from post-marketing reports of adverse events that they are an unreasonably dangerous drugs.
