ANSWER #1 of 3

It has the same ingredients, and it's equally as harmful.

"Beyaz is using the exact same ingredient as Bayer’s earlier birth control pills, which go by the name of Yaz and Yasmin. This ingredient is called drospirenone, which is a synthetic variation of progestin. While Bayer made a very big (and sometimes misleading) deal about its apparent beneficial side effects, which included acne reduction, some weight loss and relief from the more troubling emotional effects of pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder, they failed to adequately mention that drospirenone had a tendency to raise potassium levels in the bloodstreams of the women who were using it. This elevated potassium level can lead to deep vein thrombosis, which is the formation of large blood clots in the larger veins and arteries of the leg. These blood clots then break apart, and the pieces travel throughout the bloodstream, eventually causing blockages to the orderly flow of blood.

There have been thousands of cases of otherwise healthy women who have been hospitalized with strokes, heart attacks and pulmonary embolisms, and several women have died. There have been thousands of lawsuits filed by women who took these pills in good faith and ended up hospitalized for their troubles. And the key to all of this misery was the drospirenone in the pills. So now, even after all of the injuries and deaths and hospitalizations and lawsuits, Bayer has decided to give us another pill with the exact same ingredient, except this time it has extra vitamins." -
