What is deep vein thrombosis (DVT)? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Deep vein thrombosis is a side effect you can suffer after taking Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella birth control pills. It is a blood clot that commonly occurs in the leg veins, arm veins, or deep veins of the pelvis. A complication from a DVT can lead to a clot in the lungs, also known as a pulmonary embolism.
