A Yaz Lawyer Can Help
Thousands of American women have experienced serious and potentially fatal side effects from using Yaz, Yasmin or Ocella. In 2009, a pair of studies revealed that women taking these birth control pills are twice as likely to suffer blood clots than women taking another popular brand of pills. This increased risk of blood clots could lead to other serious side effects, including heart attack, stroke, deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.
Between 2004 and 2008, the Food and Drug Administration received at least 50 reports of women who died as a result of side effects caused by Yaz or Yasmin. More than 1,000 additional women have filed a Yasmin or Yaz lawsuit against Bayer, the manufacturer of the birth control pills. These lawsuit have alleged that the company failed to properly warn patients about the risk of side effects from the two products while promoting Yasmin and Yaz for acne and PMS symptoms treatment.
