Deep Vein Thrombosis & YAZ
Deep vein thrombosis is not only cosmetic. It in fact can have health complications which are both dangerous and long term. Here is a list of common DVT issues:
- DVT can cause pulmonary embolism which if left untreated can be highly dangerous and fatal.
- High probability of developing infections or gangrene. DVT can restrict blood flow which will in turn result in reduced oxygen being pumped to vital areas. This can cause increased infection and other diseases.
- Another common issue is PST or post thrombotic syndrome. This results when the blood clots cause swelling which can drip into other veins causing pain and discomfort.
Deep vein thrombosis is one of many side effects caused by the popular birth control YAZ. If you are experiencing symptoms from taking YAZ you need to consult with your healthcare professional or primary care physician.
