What is Yaz?
Yaz is a combined oral contraceptive containing ethinyl estradiol and drospirenone. At a therapeutic dose, drospirenone also has antiandrogenic and weak anti-mineralocorticoid properties. It is deprived of any estrogenic, glucocorticoid, and anti-glucocorticoid activities. It provides drospirenone with a pharmacological profile similar to natural progesterone. There is evidence of a reduction in the risk of endometrial and ovarian cancer when taking combined oral contraceptives.

- revealed acquired or hereditary susceptibility to venous or arterial thrombosis;
- high risk of venous or arterial thrombosis;
