“Women who use birth control pills with drospirenone (like Beyaz) may have a higher risk of getting a blood clot. Some studies reported that the risk of blood clots was higher for women who use birth control pills that contain drospirenone than for women who use birth control pills that do not contain drospirenone. Blood clots can be life-threatening or lead to permanent disability. Talk to your healthcare provider about your risk of blood clots before deciding which Pill is right for you.”
