Yasmin Almost Ruined Wedding Day

. By
Merrick, NYCorrine only took Yasmin for a few months prior to her wedding day. Ironically, the birth control pill almost caused the big day to be canceled!

“I wasn’t on any birth control until a few months before I got married because I didn’t want to get my period on my wedding day,” Corrine explains. Her wedding was on a Saturday, but about a week prior to that, she got out of bed, thinking about getting ready for work but she could barely walk - her leg had swollen to twice its normal size.

Corrine immediately called her fiancé: he drove her to the ER at the local hospital. “Right away the doctors determined that I had deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, in my right leg but they couldn’t deal with it at this small hospital,” she says. “Instead they did a temporary procedure until I got the right help: They put a filter in my artery so the blood clot wouldn’t travel to my lungs and I had to stay in the hospital bed for a few days until I was transferred to another hospital. I kept praying to please get me out of here before my wedding!”

At the second hospital, they removed the blood clot from Corrine’s leg and put in a stent - she had to undergo two surgeries. “I was released on Friday and got married on Saturday,” she says, laughing. “But we had to postpone our honeymoon to Hawaii because I wasn’t allowed to fly. It is crazy how quickly the Yasmin DVT happened. I had no idea; I was clueless about Yasmin side effects.

“I was married in 2008, and I can’t believe that Yasmin and Yaz, or any drospirenone birth control pills for that matter, are still prescribed - that blows my mind. I was very healthy up until I took Yasmin. No one actually came right out and said that Yasmin was to blame, but as soon as the doctors in ER started asking questions and what meds I was on, as soon as I said Yasmin, they stopped asking questions. That Yasmin birth control caused the DVT is pretty obvious to me, and to the ER doctors.

“I was on Coumadin for several months afterward and I had to take heparin during my two pregnancies to make sure I didn’t get another blood clot. And to this day, I am very cautious about taking any medications, even aspirin. Guaranteed I would never in a million years take another drospirenone drug ever again. I don’t understand how humans can be running Bayer, the maker of Yasmin and other dangerous birth control pills like Yaz and Ocella. I think it is disgusting and insane that Bayer is still allowed to put these drugs on the market. I want to get involved in a Yasmin lawsuit mainly to get these birth control pills off the market so women won’t have to go through anything like I did. And on top of that, almost ruining my wedding day.”
