Risk Factors for Yasmin Side EffectsSome women in particular have risk factors that increase the likelihood of Yasmin side effects.
Women with increased risk factors typically have a history of one or more of the following conditions, including:
- adrenal gland disorder;
- history of smoking (or tobacco use);
- blood clot disorder;
- contraception-induced jaundice;
- kidney/liver disease;
- excessive consumption of alcohol;
- hypertension/high cholesterol;
- heart disease (cardiovascular issues);
- hormone therapy; and
- certain types of cancer (such as uterine or breast).
Your prescribing physician should do a thorough medical history with you to make sure that Yasmin side effects are not a significant risk factor for you. But even with a complete medical evaluation, you may still be susceptible to the effects of a dangerous prescription drug, including Yasmin. In these circumstances, you may be eligible to pursue damages in a dangerous drug claim in Illinois.
