Beyaz is an oral contraceptive manufactured by Bayer

Beyaz is made of several ingredients including ethinylestradiol, and estrogen and drospirenone a synthetic progestogen, which makes it a “combined oral contraceptive”.  Beyaz was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) on September 24th 2010.

One of the key ingredients in Beyaz called ‘Drospirenone’ is a synthetic, steroidal progestin that prevents ovulation, (the release of an egg from an ovary) which causes changes in your cervical and uterine lining.

Drospirenone has been linked with a possible increased risk of blood clots, making it more likely to cause blood clots than other types of birth control pills. Drospirenone can be found in many types of birth control pills (oral contraceptives) including Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella.  If you smoke, you increase your risk of blood clots, stroke, or heart attack caused by birth control pills.

Blood Clots, also known as DVT (Deep Vein thrombosis) can be a dangerous condition which may result in:

Heart Attack - When a blood clot travels to the heart it can cause a heart attack
Stroke – When a blood clot travels to the brain it can cause a stroke
Pulmonary Embolism – When a blood clot travels to the lungs it causes PE (Pulmonary Embolism)
Death – When any of the above occur the conditions may be fatal

Beyaz and any other birth control pill containing drospirenone are dangerous drugs that have serious side effects including, but not limited to:

Swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat
Hives
Difficulty breathing
Numbness of the body
Headaches – including migraine headaches
Chest pain
Nausea
Breast Lumps
Depression
Darkening of facial skin
Vaginal discharge
Decreased sex drive
