Yasmin might have generated lots of sales, but that has more to do with heavy advertising than the quality of the pill itself. In fact, the FDA says that there might be a significantly higher chance that woman who take birth control pills with drospirenone, such as Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella, will experience a blood clot.
