Yasmin Birth Control Pills, Teva Pharmaceuticals, Salt Pills, Sodium Balance, Simplistic Manner
I am here to WARN ALL OF YOU that you need to stop taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella ASAP. I have studied for many years, and am well aware of what the drug in these birth control pills is doing to you. I am attaching my letter that I wrote to the FDA and pharmaceutical companies. You may not have side effects now, BUT it's just a matter of time. Please heed my warning. There are better pills to be taking. Also, if you go off of any 3 of these pills, you may continue to suffer side effects. A doctor prescribed salt pills to my niece, and they helped a lot. Your potassium and sodium balance is out of whack, due to the drug turning off another ver important hormone that will be described in my letter. I wish you all the best!! ... more »

Letter to the FDA (and the applicable drug companies)
To Whom It May Concern,
I have recently taken on the task of studying about the effects of Drospirenone, an active ingredient of Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella birth control pills. I took this study task on, since I have a high level of understanding of what certain chemicals can do in the human body. It did not take me long to realize that healthy young women were being poisoned by this criminal ingredient; criminal meaning that this ingredient should NOT be prescribed to healthy individuals under the guise of birth control pills. Unsuspecting women and teenage girls are being subjected to a dangerous chemical without fully understanding the aftermath of its purpose in the body. Apparently you do not fully understand this either, otherwise you (FDA), Bayer, Barr Industries, or Teva Pharmaceuticals would have never approved, or distributed, this horrendous concept of contraception. So, since it seems obvious to me that you lack the efficiency or education of protecting our youth, I will try and open up your eyes, in a simplistic manner, in order to help you see what a horrible and insidious ingredient you have allowed to be marketed in Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella birth control pills.
Drospirenone has close chemical similarities to Spironolactone, which places them both in a class of diuretics. They are also antagonists to the hormone called Aldosterone, through this diuretic process. Aldosterone has specific purposes in the body, which includes the fluid control and regulation of blood pressure within the vessels, as well as, regulation of sodium, which helps retain the water for these important functions. As an example of where this hormone is critical is this. A young girl engages in sports for an extended period of time, while profusely sweating, along with not replenishing the body with much needed water. The body realizes that there is a dire necessity to hold on to more sodium in order to retain the fluids that are left, hence why the much needed Aldosterone is signaled to do this job. The flow of blood is critical to our very survival because it carries oxygen and nutrients. If the Aldosterone pathway is turned off by the actions of Drospirenone, then the body has no way of maintaining this highly important function, other than to revert to robbing other organs of valuable fluids, in order to keep the vital blood pressure equalized. The robbed organs could include the gallbladder, kidneys, lungs, liver, pancreas and/or the heart. I believe the body is intelligent enough to know that it can only rob so much fluid from each organ, trying to preserve everything at a minimal of operational efficiency, before one of the organs will eventually fail. The girl playing sports is a short term understanding and example of the important function of Aldosterone, but what harm will this do to her body on a long term basis?
The girl continues taking her birth control pill daily, with the Drospirenone in it. She has no idea that her body is constantly fighting to keep her fluids adjusted in her body. She may even drink a caffeinated pop, or two, everyday, which is also a diuretic, and adds even more deleterious effects to the already compromised situation. The girl may start to get migraines, but does not know why. She may get occasional numbness, and discounts it as something that is not important. She probably will not make any connection to the birth control pills. As the fluid balance and blood pressure slowly, but surely, drops, with each passing day, the blood starts to thicken, which will inevitably lead to blood clot formation in various places of this young girl’s body. With the thickened condition of the blood, the heart finds it hard to pump this life giving fluid, because the blood pressure has become too low. The flow of oxygen and nutrients then become compromised in the entire body. As the body continues to rob vital organs of their much needed fluids, then either the gallbladder, kidneys, pancreas, liver, heart, or lungs will begin to shut down. In order for the body to continue to preserve itself, it will weaken the girl so that she cannot participate in any activity, whatsoever. Her vision may start to become blurred. She will feel nauseous due to lack of nutrients. She will lay around and become sicker and sicker as each day passes, until she dies. Is this all for the sake of stopping weight gain before her period?!! Now I have a brief lesson on why weight gain happens prior to menstruation.
Estrogen signals the body to prepare for an egg to be fertilized. In preparation of a pregnancy, the lining of the uterus is thickened for protective purposes. Once the body realizes that a pregnancy did not occur, then progesterone signals the body to start sloughing off the added lining that is no longer needed. As the time draws nearer to the menstruation, the girl begins to hold more fluids. This additional fluid is in preparation to make extra blood so that the lining and unfertilized egg can be removed by being washed out by the menstrual blood. What if the girl does not have enough fluid, in the first place, due to Drospirenone? She may not have a period at all, because the body had to first maintain it’s equalized balance of fluids in the vessels. The girl then starts developing cysts in her uterus, because all of the vital functions have been compromised and the unneeded lining could not be washed out, as nature intended. The body is doing the best it can with what it has, but something has to give. Obviously the medical establishment is not aware of these deleterious effects of Drospirenone, otherwise they would have stopped prescribing this birth control drug in the first place. Did any of you not think beyond premenstrual bloating, to the far reaching effects of stopping the enormously important function of Aldosterone?
In the very least, these birth control pills should only be prescribed to people that do have problems with hypertension or hypokalemia. Then, these same legitimately prescribed women should have their potassium levels checked on a regular basis, just as they would have to do if taking Spironolactone, otherwise they too will begin to start having the same problems that so many other girls are experiencing.
So, in closing, I want you ALL to know that you should be completely ashamed of yourselves. I could NOT live with myself knowing good and well that what I had either manufactured or approved had these harmful effects on our vibrant, wonderful, and unsuspecting young women. This drug is seriously injuring and killing our female population, and I can only surmise that it is in our marketplace for mere profit, because otherwise there is no conscionable sense to be made of this vile and detestable act. The drug, Drospirenone, should be IMMEDIATELY taken out of birth control pills and I hold you ALL accountable for not taking the initiative to do this. If you do nothing, then these injuries and deaths rest on your shoulders, and your shoulders alone. Can you live with that? I sure couldn’t.
