The risk of Venous Thrombosis (VTE) is now being printed on the warning labels for the drugs Yasmin, Safyral and Beyaz. Venous Thrombosis is a type of blood clot that forms in veins that could possibly be life-threatening. The risk of contracting VTE is 3 to 9 per every 10,000 women and risk is the highest during the first year of use. It is likeliest for a woman to develop VTE after starting the medication for the first time or starting up again after a period of cessation. The same warning was placed on YAZ labels about a year ago, but both warnings do not list anything specific. The change to the warning label was not largely publicized but was simply added to the Food and Drug Administration's website after it was placed on the new birth control inserts.
